A new booklet from California-based TGI Justice Project is intended to serve as a guide for transgender women in the state’s prison system.
“This guide was created because trans women imprisoned in the SF [San Francisco] jails expressed a need for detailed information about going to prison or back to prison after not having been there in a long time,” the authors of Surviving Prison in California: Advice By and For Transgender Women wrote.
Topics covered include: housing, safety, education, dress codes and health.
“Overall, prison is a place that you, for the most part, decide what kind of time you’ll do… Always stand for your sisters though, right or wrong, we are our only real allies in here,” the authors wrote.
