        Four plaintiffs who have been incarcerated at the women’s prison
        in Chowchilla, CCWF, have filed the */#MeToo Behind Bars/*
        lawsuit against the California Department of Corrections and
        Rehabilitation (CDC(r).  The plaintiffs all identify as
        transgender, gender non-conforming (GNC) or queer. The lawsuit
        denounces physical assaults, sexual harassment and homophobic/
        transphobic insults by correctional officers against them.
        *Rojas, one of the plaintiffs in the case, will be part of a
        panel discussion after the film.*

        Southwest of Salem
        <http://www.southwestofsalem.com/about-2/> tells the story of
        four Latina lesbians who were wrongfully convicted of
        gang-raping two young girls in the early 1990’s in San Antonio,
        Texas. They spent decades in prison before finally being
        exonerated. Their prosecution and conviction was the product of
        a homophobic culture and criminal legal system.  Now trans, GNC
        and queer people are facing persecution in California’s women’s
        prisons as a result of similar attitudes and a prison power
        structure that condones**targeted violence against LGBTQ and
        gender nonconforming prisoners.
