BreakOUT! was proud to participate in a convening last year that resulted in the publishing of a report by the Center for Gender & Sexuality Law at Columbia Law School and co-authored by the Center for American Progress, the Center for HIV Law and Policy, and Streetwise & Safe, A Roadmap for Change: Federal Policy Recommendations for Addressing the Criminalization of LGBT People and People Living with HIV.
The authors gathered input from more than 50 legal, advocacy and grassroots organizations working on LGBT and criminal justice policy and “provides an extensive outline of policy measures that federal agencies can adopt to address discriminatory and abusive policing practices, improve conditions for LGBT prisoners and immigrants in detention, decriminalize HIV, and prevent LGBT youth and adults from coming in contact with the system in the first place.”
