This Friday Department of Corrections Director Devon Brown will appear before the DC Council for their annual Oversight Hearing. This is our chance to question the Council and Director Brown about the implementation of the new trans policies in DC Jails!
For some time now, the DC Trans Coalition has been asking why the the new DOC trans policy is being circumvented. Why hasn’t a pool of community volunteers been selected to serve on the Transgender Housing Committee? Why won’t DOC answer our requests for information about trans housing, training, and medical services at the jail?
We are going to testify before the Council to raise these questions and demand answers from Director Brown this Friday. Please show your support by attending this Oversight hearing!
The hearing is open to the public, and it will held at 10:00am on Friday the 12th in the Wilson Building (1350 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 5th Floor Council Chamber). We hope to see you there!
