Alaiza Mata started this petition to State Representative Terry Canales

Inmates that identify as someone from the LGBT community are more likely to be victims of violence, rape, and even death while serving time. This is due to the lack of policy that is implemented in prisons and jails. In November 2013, Harris County, Texas adopted a policy that would protect prisoners from the LGBT community and would allow them to be housed based on their gender identity. I urge you all to share and sign. Hidalgo County needs change to happen regarding LGBT lives. Spread the word and mail Terry Canales regarding this issue that needs to be addressed. People's lives and constitutional rights are on the line. We do not want to see another member of the LGBT community to be a victim of violence and negligence by the state!
