Urge Attorney General Holder to Adopt Strong Standards on Prisoner Rape


March 16, 2010 -

As we announced last week, the Department of Justice has opened a 60-day public comment period on national standards addressing sexual abuse in detention. Released last June by a bipartisan federal commission, these common-sense measures have the potential to help end sexual abuse in detention. We would like you to join us in sending a strong message to the Justice Department that these are well-crafted standards, which should become binding federal regulations.

Please follow this link to sign our petition urging the Attorney General to enact strong standards to end sexual abuse behind bars. Your message will be entered into the official record as a public comment
