Free the 16-year-old Transgender Girl Currently Incarcerated in an Adult Prison Without Criminal Charges

I have seen how being able to live as needed, according to their own recognized gender, can heal transgender people. It is ethically and morally wrong to imprison and treat such a person abusively, and will do nothing to change the situation - as she has stated, she needs therapeutic treatment help and support. Anything less is a failure of our system, and a failure of the compassion necessary for all peoples, including the most diverse among us.
