There are so many transgender women incarcerated with no access to funds for commissary. Commissary is a way to allow immigrant prisoners to use funds from family, friends and organizations to purchase food, hygiene products, writing materials and to call folks outside to alleviate the intense isolation of detention and jail.
QDEP has multiple trans women inside that have been placed in Segregated Housing Units (SHU) and solitary confinement for being Transwomen. The SHU and solitary has led to serious adverse affects on both women’s mental and emotional health. Help us raise money for these women to improve their safety, security and happiness!
