Lisa Mitchell

Lisa Mitchell is a Black trans woman who has been sitting in solitary confinement in Dane County Jail for the past 6 months. She is in solitary solely because of her gender identity as a trans woman. She is being held on charges of “prostitution.” While fighting her case, Lisa Mitchell has experienced transphobia at all levels of the criminal system. She has been denied hormone therapy, has been called the wrong name and pronouns, her gender identity has been called deceptive and a disguise, and again, her long sit in solitary is only due to her gender identity. The harassment and criminalization of Lisa Mitchell due to being a Black trans woman must stop. Click here to sign the petition.
