Today I filed another FOIA to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families, this time focusing on processes and procedures for determining when placing a girl in a male-designated facility is appropriate (the answer should be never, but CTDCF feels differently), what steps are taken to provide safety, and policies and procedures for placing a child under the care of CTDCF in solitary confinement.

Petition for Reconsideration to the Office of Personnel Management
While I consider my meeting with the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, discussing trans-inclusive healthcare in the context of an Office of Personnel Management rulemaking on “nondiscrimination provisions,” to be a success in raising the visibility of the issue, the fact remains that OPM ignored the issue entirely in its rule. Thus, I filed this Petition for Reconsideration, which asks OPM to address its continuing discrimination against transgender Federal employees.
