Lambda Legal Client Donisha McShan

This weekend Lambda Legal's short documentary, I Believe in Me: Fighting for Trans Rights in Prison, will screen at Translations: The Seattle Transgender Film Festival. 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.
