Families of New York inmates will call on the state to address the coronavirus crisis in prison and to reinstate family visits.

The Alliance of Families for Justice is holding a car caravan protest Thursday afternoon.     

They want Gov. Cuomo and the Department of Corrections to address what they say is little to no PPE, no social distancing, and a lack of access to medical personnel and testing in prisons.

The protest will go from Crossgates Mall to the State Capitol.
