Prison Rape Survivors Speak Out

In Our Experience: Recommendations by Prisoner Rape Survivors to the National Prison Rape Elimination Commission is a publication derived from the first Prisoner Rape Survivor Summit conducted by Stop Prisoner Rape. Participants pointed out the vulnerability of certain individuals (physically and/or mentally disadvantaged; youthful offenders; smaller individuals; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning) and the legal responsibility of the criminal justice system to provide a safe and humane environment. Their recommendations emphasized the importance of classification, housing assignments, staff training, and the role of authorities in preventing and investigating sexual assaults to ensure the fundamental dignity and safety of incarcerated persons.
