A Roadmap for Change: Federal Policy Recommendations for Addressing the Criminalization of LGBT People and People Living with HIV

By Catherine Hanssens, Aisha C. Moodie-Mills, Andrea J. Ritchie, Dean Spade, Urvashi Vaid, 2014

This document outlines a range of policy solutions that would go a long way towards addressing discriminatory and abusive policing practices, improving conditions for LGBT prisoners and immigrants in detention, de-criminalizing HIV, and preventing LGBT youth from coming in contact with the system in the first place. Additionally, we identify many areas of opportunity for the federal government to support improved outcomes for LGBT people and eliminate some of the systemic drivers of incarceration through federal programs relating to housing, employment, health care, education, immigration, out of home youth, violence response and prevention, and social services.
