No Pride in Prisons is holding a rally for International Day of Trans Prisoner Solidarity!
Come along to show your support for incarcerated trans people across Aotearoa. The rally will include speakers from No Pride in Prisons and other organisations discussing the reality faced by trans prisoners in this country. More info to come!
No Pride in Prisons will be making a set of demands:
– In every instance where detention is not mandatory, trans people should not be sentenced to imprisonment.
– For trans people to be sent to the facility of their choosing upon intake
– An end to the double-bunking policies introduced from 2009-2011
– For the Department of Corrections to apologise and take responsibility for the violence incarcerated trans women are facing in New Zealand prisons
Please come along and boost this post for your Auckland followers!!!
