Stefanie Rivera, SRLP’s Director of Client Services, was recently interviewed by Latina magazine about the importance of centering prisoners’ justice and fighting oppressive systems.
As Stefanie notes in the interview,
“It’s important that we are aware of the injustices our brothers and sisters who are locked up in cages experience. It’s out of sight, so we often “miss” their struggle: the beatings they endure by the hands of correctional officers and inmates; staff that prevents them from having access to hormone treatment or gender-affirming clothing; trans women being forced to shave their heads bald when entering prison. This is dehumanizing, and it’s important that the voices of the unheard are told from outside of those walls. “
