How to Navigate and Content Warning
Welcome. Here you can listen to and read over 100 first-hand accounts of the horrific conditions of pretrial caging in Texas jails from 90 people caged in nine different county jails during COVID.
Each square represents one of these people. Click on a square to learn more about who they are and hear directly from them and their loved ones — through video, audio, letters, grievance forms, and transcripts. On the top right of the page, you can also choose to filter the witness statements by County, Condition, and type of Media and/or just type in keywords to search through all of the content.
Please take care as you interact with and listen to these stories. The content will feature subjects that many will find difficult — including confinement, medical neglect, and death.
