Criminal Justice Reform for LGBT People
As part of our work to combat the relentless expansion of the criminal justice system, the ACLU works to ensure that LGBT people and people living with HIV/AIDS are treated fairly by law enforcement and aren't singled out for violence or discrimination. We challenge policing practices that unfairly target LGBT people and people living with HIV/AIDS and take on unconstitutional conditions in prisons, jails, and immigration detention. From police profiling of trans women of color as sex workers to the violence LGBT people face in custody, criminal justice reform is critically important for the LGBT movement.

If you've been discriminated against based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status, the ACLU wants to hear about it.
