GLAD submitted an amicus brief along with the ACLU in a case in which the state sought to transfer a transgender girl from a youth juvenile justice facility to a men’s adult prison.
The brief set forth two arguments. First, that a transgender girl should be in a girl’s facility. Second, that transferring her to a an adult prison would undermine the rehabilitative goals the state must strive to meet.
