SRLP News

SRLP continues fight against sexual assault in detention.

In coalition with other groups, on April 4, 2011, SRLP submitted comments to regulations that would implement the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).  We urge the Attorney General to make certain important changes to the proposed regulations to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and gender nonconforming people in various forms of detention including prisons and jails. SRLP and SRLP's Prisoner Advisory Committee have been involved in fighting for the most effective and positive implementation of PREA possible for years.  Many of our PAC members have also submitted individual comments.  To read the comment submitted by the LGBTI coalition, click here.
