Interactions with Law Enforcement and Transgender Peoples' Rights in Prisons/Jails
Hear from formerly incarcerated transgender individuals about their experiences with law enforcement, their experience while incarcerated, and journey throughout the reentry process. Legal experts will present the current state of pending litigation and prisoners' rights, and the session will close by outlining resources for advocates seeking to update department and facility policies on interacting with transgender individuals.
This workshop is meant for advocates interested in prisoners’ rights and police reform. The resources we will share are meant for advocates at every level of experience in these areas. Those interested in technical assistance to update department, agency, or facility policies on transgender interactions are especially encouraged to attend.
