At 75,000 signatures, this petition becomes one of the top signed on Change.org!

Ashley Diamond is a Black, transgender woman and prisoners' rights activist, and her situation is urgent as she is facing repeated sexual assault and denial of healthcare, which has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Ashley made national headlines in 2016 for her landmark victory against the Georgia Department of Corrections. The case changed prison medical policy in Georgia, which was later adopted as precedent by the U.S. Department of Justice. Ashley has since been re-imprisoned because of a technical parole violation and is currently incarcerated at Coastal State Prison in Garden City, Georgia. Despite governmental promises for change, she has again been placed in a men’s facility. 

Ashley continues to fight but needs your assistance. Ashley’s demands are: to be treated fairly, to be moved to a women’s prison, and to be free.

Sign this petition to demand that Ashley be immediately transferred to a women’s facility with access to the healthcare she vitally needs. Since Ashley is eligible for parole in early March 2021, we are also asking that she be granted parole immediately given the violence she has been experiencing while imprisoned. The petition signatures will be sent to both Governor Kemp as well as the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles.

We are also asking for monthly donations for Ashley so she can receive the sustained support she needs. Funds will go towards commissary as well as her efforts to find safe housing upon release. Donate to Ashley’s GoFundMe or preferably, please sign up for a monthly contribution through Patreon.
