The Gender Identity Respect, Dignity, and Safety Act would help keep TGNCNBI people safe by requiring that prisons and jails presumptively house people consistently with their gender identities, with a list of reasons that cannot be used as the basis for a denial; ensuring that staff at facilities respect a person’s gender identity in all contexts, including name and pronoun use and during searches; and mandating access to clothing, toiletry items, and grooming standards consistent with a person’s gender identity.
