CCLP Teams Up with National Center for Lesbian Rights to Protect Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex Youth

Posted by admin

On November 9, CCLP partnered with the National Center for Lesbian Rights to co-facilitate an all-day gathering focused on developing a model policy for transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex (TGNCI) youth in out-of-home placements. The convening, supported by the PREA Resource Center, brought together 18 advocates, formerly incarcerated individuals, facility directors, and youth justice practitioners from across the country. CCLP and NCLR will release a model policy with guidance for the field this spring. Thank you to Shannan Wilber of NCLR and the PREA Resource Center for the opportunity to support the well-being of TGNCI young people!
