Trans in the Criminal Justice System
When: 1.15pm, Saturday March 5th

The government is re-examining its policy on transgender inmates following the death of two trans women at all-male prisons in the UK. Transphobic hate crime is on the rise. Discriminatory stop & search continues.
LSE invites you to ‘Trans in the Criminal Justice System’, a panel discussion on the challenges faced by trans people and how the criminal justice system should be reformed. Audience participation is strongly encouraged, so please do come prepared to ask questions.
