Federal investigations, congressional inquiries, and national media reporting have revealed that numerous FCI Dublin employees—including the ex-Warden, the prison chaplain, and correctional officers—have subjected dozens of incarcerated people to egregious sexual abuse, including harassment, assault, and rape, over a number of years. There have been a handful of prosecutions of individual actors involved in this abusive conduct, but there haven’t been any meaningful efforts to remedy the systemic causes that led to these terrible abuses. At the same time, many survivors have been retaliated against, transferred to ICE detention facilities around the country, and deported. The Dublin Prison Solidarity Coalition is calling on supporters to help mobilize for systemic change!
The Dublin Prison Solidarity Coalition includes: California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP), Centro Legal de la Raza, Rights Behind Bars (RBB), ACLU Northern California, Dolores Street Community Services, California Collaborative for Immigrant Justice and Survivors of FCI Dublin Abuse.
