Wed, 09/03/2008 - 12:53 JAIL SOLIDARITY Call the jail and demand transfolk be placed in gendered cells of their choice. Ramsey county jail: 651-266-9530, Hennepin: 612-348-5112
I called and had to be on hold for a while, but when I spoke to them I told them that they have prisoners who are transgender who are not being put in the correct cells. The operator told me, frustratedly, “they’re being put in the cells of the gender they are”, I said exactly, they are not being put in the cells they have demanded and by doing so, you are endangering their lives. She said “that’s not true” and hung up the phone.
