A working group convened by Manhattan District Attorney (DA) Alvin Bragg published a series of recommendations intended to improve how the DA’s office engages with transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary (TGNCNB) community-based advocates, employees, survivors, and witnesses.
“I would like to thank the members of the TGNCNB Working Group who collaborated for months to analyze our Office’s practices and suggest strategies to improve how we serve trans and gender-diverse survivors, witnesses, and community members,” said D.A. Bragg.
A 34-year-old man who has been on the run for two years for a fatal hit-and-run crash was arrested in Tennessee, authorities said Thursday.
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.
“Despite causing a horrific car crash that led to the death of one individual, Jason Clotter allegedly immediately fled New York to avoid prosecution. Today’s indictment makes clear that we treat any deaths that result from reckless driving just as seriously as any other form of violence,” said District Attorney Bragg.
