TGNCNB Working Group Report & Recommendations

The Office commissioned a report by the Transgender/Gender-Nonconforming/Nonbinary (“TGNCNB”) Working Group with recommendations for the Office – and prosecutors across the country – to better serve trans and gender-diverse survivors, witnesses, community-based advocates, and employees. In December 2021, the Office hired Trans Equity Consulting, led by Principal Consultant and Founder Cecilia Gentili, to guide the Working Group, which included members of the NYC Gay & Lesbian Anti-Violence Project (“AVP”), New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, the Hetrick Martin Institute (“HMI”), and the New York City Commission on Human Rights, as well as representatives from the D.A.’s Office. The report represents both the culmination of the Working Group’s efforts, and the official start of the Office’s work to implement the Working Group’s recommendations.
