Join DCTC and SRLP for Community Meeting on Prison Issues

Join members of DCTC and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project for two great events coming up on Thursday.

At 12:15 – 1:30 pm, there will be a lunchtime panel at Georgetown University Law on Trans Law, Policy & Activism. Please contact us for more information if you’re interested.

In the evening, the Prisoner Correspondence Project, Sylvia Rivera Law Project, and the DC Trans Coalition invite you to join us for a meeting about confronting violence and incarceration…

Thurs. Oct. 16th, 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Foundry Methodist Church, Room B2
1500 16th St NW, Washington DC

Snacks will be served! Some money will be available to help cover transportation costs if needed!

Join us for a night of networking and strategy discussions. We’ll dialogue with a panel of representatives from local and regional organizations to learn from each other’s work providing accessible healthcare, legal and other services to the trans community, and how these community-led efforts are planting the seeds of a world free of violence by providing concrete alternatives here and now.

Participating organizations include:
*Sylvia Rivera Law Project (NYC)
*Prisoner Correspondence Project
*DC Trans Coalition
*Different Avenues
*Critical Resistance D.C.
*And possibly more!

Then, let’s brainstorm ways to work together toward our shared goals of social, economic, sexual, racial and gender justice. How can we actively support folks who are in or just getting out of prison? How can we respond to poverty and violence in ways that don’t rely on policing or prison and that challenge racism, classism, sexism, ageism
and other kinds of oppression? Centering the experiences of those who are most directly affected by State and interpersonal violence, what might a world with safer communities and without prisons look like, where we could express gender without fear, discrimination, harassment or imprisonment?
