The Fight to Reform LGBTQ Incarceration with Dominique Morgan of Black & Pink National & Latrice Royale
LGBTQ people face an incarceration rate that is roughly three times higher than the general incarceration rate, according to data compiled by the Williams Institute. And the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey reported that Black transgender women were incarcerated approximately at a rate ten times that of the general population. In the latest episode of #AuthenticVoicesOfPride presented by Chevy, LGBTQ Nation follows Dominique Morgan, the Executive Director of Black and Pink National. She knows these issues on a personal level – and that’s why she’s fighting for her community.
