One of my closest friends is bi-racial and very proud of being so. She is also a part of the LGBTQIA+ community as am I. I would never ever want to see her in such a horrible position as these poor women and maybe even men (i'm not sure) have had to be in. I wish these people the best, and I hope that I can be more and more active in solving the hatred against trans as I grow older. For now, I hope signing this petition will show that I truly do care even though I can't offer anything greater at this time. All the best.

I myself am trans, and I know the hardship of missing what one direly needs.

I hope that prison officials find the love that is in their hearts and do the right thing for a marginalized group. I hope all in the DOC have a Happy Thanksgiving and remember those that are homeless and alone on this day because of their identity. I believe love changes all, and the DOC is no exception.

Punishing crimes shouldn't involve the torture of being stripped of one's gender.

The ability to maintain your identity is crucial to the reform process of prison. Optimally we want people to think about the crimes, but also develop better skills, coping mechanisms and creativity. I believe that allowing these helps people maintain identities instead of forcing them to be who they are not... Creating more disdain for the process. It is a great inhibitor to the rehabilitation of these people.

This is incredibly important to me. IF we do not respect each other's freedom to express their gender, we are doing a grave injustice to them and the rest of us. We are all negatively affected when we are pidgeon-holed and told how to dress and shamed into submitting to rigid gender norms.
