On Friday, April 11 from 2-3:15 PM, Alisha Williams, Director of the Prisoner Justice Project at SRLP, will be speaking at UCLA’s Williams Institute at their conference, LGBTQ Youth and the State. If you’re in LA, join Alisha to talk about the disproportionate policing and incarceration of LGBTQ youth. Alisha will also discuss some of the work we do at SRLP to improve conditions for trans and gender nonconforming people in prison and to resist criminalization and reduce the numbers of people targeted, arrested, and confined by the criminal punishment system.
