Lambda Legal Client Donisha McShan

On Saturday, Lambda Legal's short documentary, I Believe in Me: Fighting for Trans Rights in Prison, will screen in Chicago at the (In)Justice For All Film Festival, a festival presenting films that explore the criminal justice system. The film documents Donisha McShan’s successful fight to be treated as a woman while at The H Group, the Marion, Illinois, halfway house where she was receiving substance abuse counseling. Lambda Legal sent a demand letter to The H Group after Ms. McShan contacted Lambda Legal’s Help Desk.
