Join us to demand #JusticeForJane!

For over a month now, Jane Doe, a transgender Latina teenager and abuse and trafficking victim, has been in solitary confinement at CT Training Juvenile School, a prison-like boys’ facility. After being held in a women’s prison without charges for over a month, Jane is suffering again – this time in a solitary cell surrounded by boys.

CT DCF and Commissioner Katz, who has been shamelessly protecting Jane’s abusers and demonizing Jane every step of the way, have gone to extreme lengths to make sure Jane is kept in these disgusting conditions and not allowed into a loving family or to demand justice for the horrific abuse she has been suffering since age 8.

Jane has waited long enough for legal maneuvering. We need to stand together in demanding the truth about Jane’s conditions, demanding that she be released immediately and that her abusers be brought to justice. Please join us to rally and march and say NO MORE to Katz and DCF’s abuse of Jane and other youth!

Justice for Jane!
Justice for all youth in DCF “care”!
Justice for all poor and LGBTQ* youth and youth of color!
