SRLP continues fight against sexual assault in detention.

In coalition with other groups, on April 4, 2011, SRLP submitted comments to regulations that  would implement the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).  We urge  the Attorney General to make certain important changes to the proposed regulations to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and gender  nonconforming people in various forms of detention including prisons and jails. SRLP and SRLP’s Prisoner Advisory Committee have been involved  in fighting for the most effective and positive implementation of PREA  possible for years.  Many of our PAC members have also submitted  individual comments.  To read the comment submitted by the LGBTI coalition, click here: PREA comments LGBTI orgs final 4 4 11
