ACTION ALERT! Write to IPP Taylor

IPP prisoner Taylor has been moved to segregation unit in HMP Downview.

Segregation units seriously impact the mental health of prisoners, with 23 hours out of every 24 spent in solitary confinement. It is widely known that segregation increases the rates of depression and risk of self-harm for people.

Taylor has a long history of self-harm in prison. IPP sentencing doesn’t give prisoners a release date, this combined with the ongoing neglect, abuse, transphobia and general trauma of the prison system has slowly destroyed Taylor’s mental health.

We are calling out to everyone to offer their solidarity and end the isolation by writing to Taylor now at this address:

Taylor is a Trans Masculine prisoner in a women’s prison, Taylor loves animals. They used to rescue dogs on the out, and especially loves staffies. They love the ocean and grew up by the sea. They also love tattoos and piercings. WRITE TO TAYLOR.jpg
