Trans Inmates Stripped of Protections

Last week, BuzzFeed News reported that the administration has stripped away rights from yet another vulnerable group of transgender people - this time, transgender inmates, who already face appallingly high rates of violence. The policy gives federal officials more leeway to place transgender women in cells alongside men — a circumstance that advocates argue leaves transgender inmates vulnerable to violence and rape.
