Course Overview:

In a country that incarcerates more of its people than any other in the world, transgender people are more likely to be stopped and questioned by police, engage in survival crimes such as sex work, trespassing, and shoplifting for food, then end up behind bars and then more likely to face abuse while there. This training will begin with an overview of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), then proceed into providing corrections practitioners an insight on properly dealing with the issues we face in providing a safe and secure environment for transgender inmates, while satisfying the requirements brought forth with PREA.
