She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

Please reblog to raise awareness!

signal boost, please!

Definitely e-mail Commissioner Katz, and also sign the Yale Undergraduate Prison Project’s petition, which currently needs another 455 signatures to meet its goal.

Also, there’s a rally for this girl being held this Friday in Hartford at the Department of Children and Families - definitely attend if you live in the area.
