Trans Identities and the Prison Industrial Complex
Members of RedBird will be presenting at the Trans Ohio conference on April 27th
Trans Identities and the Prison Industrial Complex by Alec Armstrong and Genelle Denzin
Our workshop will begin with a short presentation on the ways our justice system has historically affected and still affects transgender folks in the US. We will include discussion of current ODRC policy on housing and healthcare for transgender people who are in prison. We will examine recent instances of transgender people’s experiences with the criminal justice system and instances of support and organizing to address these issues. The rest of the workshop will be facilitated discussion with the goals of thinking critically, creating meaningful connections between people, and collaborating on ideas for action.
