EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Chandler v. CDCR Litigation Team Grows

WoLF is pleased to welcome law firm Campbell Miller Payne PLLC (CMP) to the litigation team for Chandler v. CDCR, joining WoLF counsel to challenge the constitutionality of California’s self-ID prison housing law on behalf of plaintiffs Janine Chandler, Tomiekia Johnson, Krystal Gonzalez, and Nadia Romero. Founded in 2023 to specialize in representing detransitioners, CMP collectively brings decades of diverse high-stakes litigation experience and a demonstrated commitment to justice for the victims of the medical harm of “gender identity” ideology.

Candice Jackson, a civil rights lawyer and subject matter expert, will continue to serve as local counsel. Prior to joining this case with WoLF, Candice worked in the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights as Deputy General Counsel. Lauren Bone, founder of Adams Bone Law and former WoLF legal director,  will continue to represent WoLF as co-counsel on Chandler v. CDCR. Lauren has nearly a decade of legal experience in civil rights, family law, and non-profit law. In her role as legal counsel for WoLF, she files amici briefs, co-authored the Women's Bill of Rights for WoLF, writes regulatory comments, testifies on WoLF's behalf, and works with WoLF staff and volunteers to drive grassroots advocacy and public education efforts. 

In 2023, Jordan Campbell, Ron Miller, Josh Payne, and Daniel Sepulveda founded CMP PLLC to take on the cases of detransitioners. Detransitioners are a growing group of individuals who received gender medical interventions and came to regret this decision for myriad reasons, including that they no longer identify as “transgender” or “non-binary.” The known effects and unexpected complications of gender medical interventions are irreversible and sometimes catastrophic, leading to infertility, impairment or loss of sexual function as adults, or even death. CMP exists to speak up for these victims (many of whom began gender medical interventions under the fiction of “gender-affirming care” as children) to assert their rights and pursue justice. 

CMP now joins Adams Bone Law in fighting against the cruel and unusual punishment of incarcerated women through harmful “gender identity” prison policies.

Status of Chandler v. CDCR

In November 2021, WoLF filed a lawsuit on behalf of four incarcerated women challenging a California law that allows men to “self-identify” as women or non-binary land be housed in women’s facilities. WoLF is asking the court to overturn this law and declare it unconstitutional. The Chandler v. CDCR case currently has a pending Motion to Intervene by four male prisoners represented by former civil liberties advocates at the ACLU, the Transgender Law Center (TLC), and Lambda Legal —  once known for its gay rights advocacy. Also pending is a Motion to Dismiss by the California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation. 

For over a year, WoLF and its plaintiffs have waited for a ruling on these pending motions. In the meantime, policies such as California’s have resulted in pregnancy, sexual abuse, harassment, violence, and declining quality of life for female prisoners despite such outcomes being entirely avoidable, preventable, foreseeable, and predictable by simply not locking incarcerated women up with men. 

Today, the need for nonpartisan feminist dissent from “gender” has only increased as lawmakers and politicians have surrendered women’s rights in the face of partisanship, social pressure, and popular culture. WoLF is delivering a feminist counter-narrative to gender ideology at every level of government in the United States, thanks to our willingness to develop strategic partnerships and the dedication of our donors. By joining forces, WoLF, Adams Bone Law, and CMP aim to achieve a landmark victory that paves the way for the sex-based rights of incarcerated women across the country.

Running with the Pack: WoLF Member & Volunteer Spotlight


Araquel, WoLF Member & Volunteer

"As a woman, mother, activist, and organizer, there are no issues more pressing today and no fight more imperative for our tomorrows than the ones retaining and regaining the sex-based rights of women and girls.

I choose to volunteer with WoLF because of their unwavering and singularly-focused commitment to the liberation of women and girls. WoLF has become the critically needed legal response to the ACLU, which has all but abandoned its history of defending against the erosion of women’s rights.


I believe in the women of WoLF, whose advocacy for women and girls consistently reflect the ideals of radical feminist. With so much at stake, this is not the time to balk or hesitate but to rise with a sense of urgency and face each new affront; and use our united strength and endurance to pace ourselves for the long haul. 

WoLF is a gift which keeps on giving, and I’m proud to be just one volunteer among many to support their mission, so they can keep fighting for women and girls." 

Thank you, Araquel!
