Manhattan’s DA Office released first-of-its-kind recommended guidelines for how law enforcement can better serve TGNCI+ community members. The recommendations were crafted by trans rights advocates, led by Cecilia Gentili and including NYLPI, NYC Gay & Lesbian Anti-Violence Project the NYC Commission on Human Rights, and the Hetrick Martin Institute.

“Trans and nonbinary individuals, as well as gender non-conforming folks, have a long history of mistreatment when meeting the criminal justice system,” Gentili, the founder of Trans Equity Consulting, said in a statement. “These recommendations are a great starting point to create healing and find inclusive and caring ways to shift their experience to better outcomes.”
