The Federal Bureau of Prisons has begun to recruit employees who will serve as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender representatives for each correctional facility.
The Department of Justice and the Bureau of Prisons announced the new plan earlier this month. It's for employees who are willing to devote 20 percent of their workday to promoting lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender issues.
The government said LGBT representatives will serve as members of each prison's affirmative action committee.
Specifically, they'll "coordinate activities and programs designed to cultivate LGBT cultural awareness both within and outside the institution."
Pat Nolan, vice president of Prison Fellowship Ministries, talked more about the LGBT program on CBN News Channel Morning News, March 19.
