Tell the Obama Administration – Stop the Rape of Prisoners Now

This petition had 10,559 supporters

On March 10, 2010, the Department of Justice opened a 60-day public comment period on national standards addressing sexual abuse in detention. Released last June by a bipartisan federal commission, these common-sense measures have the potential to help end sexual abuse in detention. But the standards are opposed by some powerful corrections leaders. These officials argue that it is too expensive to stop prisoner rape, and they seem to have a great deal of influence over the Department of Justice.

Send a letter below that will be entered into the official record as a public comment urging the Attorney General to enact strong standards to end sexual abuse behind bars.
