  • Have you ever spent a significant amount of time without human contact? If so, what were the effects of this time alone? What does that tell you about your own need for human interaction?

  • In her interview, Rev. Downton speaks on the false security of solitary confinement as protective custody for LGBTQIA incarcerated persons who are facing threats on a regular basis. How can we open up conversations with elected officials on alternatives to this gross injustice?

  • In what ways can you bring to light in your own community the struggles many LGBT people face in prison?

  • Would incarcerating transgender people based on their gender identification as opposed to their sex be a solution? Why or why not?
