TGNCI Model Policy

The PRC is pleased to release a new publication entitled “Model Policy: Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, and Intersex (TGNCI) Youth in Confinement Facilities.” The PREA standards explicitly protect TGNCI youth due to their extreme vulnerability to sexual assault and mistreatment. The relevant standards govern a range of practices, including risk assessment, housing and classification, searches, and privacy. This new publication offers practical policies that operationalize the standards and provide clear guidance to facility staff about promoting the safety and well-being of TGNCI residents.

The model policy was funded by PRC through a mini-grant to the National Center for Lesbian Rights in collaboration with the Center for Children's Law and Policy with a diverse group of justice stakeholders.
