Jane Doe Petition to Governor Malloy

Dear Governor Malloy:

Jane Doe, a 16-year-old black transgender girl, has been in an adult prison for over a month. This is unconscionable. She has not been convicted or accused of an adult crime. She is an abused child that the Department of Children and Families has an obligation to help and protect. The state is violating Jane Doe’s rights and failing in its obligation as her legal parent to put her in a safe and healthy environment. Adult prison is no place for a child.

Last week you called for a more appropriate placement for Jane to be determined quickly. Thank you.

DCF should be working with clinical experts to develop a plan for her treatment and continued well-being. Today we, the undersigned residents of Connecticut, ask you to continue to intervene on Jane’s behalf to ensure that a clinically-derived plan is created and implemented ASAP.

Respectfully,

(Name) (Address)
