Trans Rights and Criminal Justice Wrongs, an Arcus Forum event taking place on Nov. 13, 2014, brought together well-known and rising leaders in the prisoner rights and trans rights movements, calling attention to the unjust experiences of trans people, particularly trans women of color disproportionately impacted by incarceration and criminal law.
The Forum reflected on the central role that a broken criminal justice system plays in the oppression of trans people, and how these two movements can make inroads towards achieving true equality and justice.
