Prison Justice


The so-called war on drugs, the policing of perceived identity rather than unlawful conduct, and mandatory minimum sentencing have caused the population of people incarcerated in the U.S. to skyrocket. Black people are disproportionately incarcerated, as are trans people, poor people, and people of different abilities. While incarcerated, people are often denied human rights, medically necessary care, and gender confirming health and mental health care. I advocate for people aging in prison, for people incarcerated as a consequence of political activity or politically motivated prosecutions, and for people seeking gender confirming care in prison. Until it is no longer necessary, I will work to ensure that incarcerated persons are able to live with as much dignity as possible, both inside prisons, and upon their release.
