Maryland & Jill P. Carter @jillpcarter (USA)

Maryland Delegate Jill Carter and others have introduced legislation requiring the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services to make an annual report on segregated confinement to the Governor, including information on the inmate’s gender identity (if different from sex at birth). Administrative segregation is used by prison officials in lieu of making the general prison population safe from sexual abuse.

No one should be placed in administrative segregation based on gender identity or sexual orientation. We like the approach used by Rikers Island of creating a special wing for trans inmates.
