This video is the first in a series documenting the positive impact of the PREA Standards. Produced by the PRC in partnership with Just Detention International, the PREA and Culture Change series features currently and formerly incarcerated people and corrections staff speaking about how PREA is changing the culture of corrections—and making facilities safer for everyone.
Troy Isaac is a survivor of sexual abuse in youth and adult detention facilities. As a member of JDI’s Survivor Council, Troy is a leading advocate to end prisoner rape. In this video, Troy explains how PREA is making a difference in the lives of people who are locked up, especially LGBT youth.
The videos are a very useful tool for staff trainings, and other PREA stakeholders—such as advocates, victim services providers, and health care professionals—can also draw on them for their work inside detention facilities.
Each video is also available in an accessible format including closed captions, interactive transcript, and audio descriptions.
