DCTC speaking at hearing on Department of Corrections housing

This morning, DCTC is testifying before the DC Council’s Judiciary Committee at a hearing on “population management” within the DC Department of Corrections.  In our testimony, we call for:

  • Increasing the volunteer pool for DOC’s transgender housing committee, and releasing a public list of approved volunteers;
  • Improving transparency and data collection, so that we know exactly how many trans people are incarcerated;
  • Developing alternatives to incarceration, especially for non-violent offenses.

You can read our full statement here.  Today’s hearing is at 11:00am in room 412 of the John A. Wilson Building, at 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
