Zahara Green, formerly known as Darius Ishun Green, is suing the Georgia Department of Corrections in two separate lawsuits for sexual assaults he endured while incarcerated for shoplifting. Green, a transgender woman, alleges that the DOC housed him with another inmate who repeatedly sexually assaulted him.
All people have a right to safety while incarcerated. Although we oppose housing male inmates with female inmates, we believe that prison systems must create safe space for male inmates who identify as women.
Green previously filed a lawsuit pro se based on similar alleged facts, but agreed to dismiss that lawsuit.
