Now in our sixteenth year of fighting for trans rights and in the midst of a political environment that has increased the need for transgender support services, Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund's work is more important than ever.
TLDEF's Name Change Project provides free legal name change services to low-income transgender and non-binary people through partnerships with some of the nation's most prestigious law firms and corporate law departments.
Our Impact Litigation Program pursues justice and expands rights for transgender people in federal and state courts throughout the country. Previous cases have overturned discriminatory "bathroom bill"s, eliminated government-imposed barriers to fair and equal treatment, and prompted corporations to end discriminatory practices.
Together we can provide life-affirming support to transgender individuals and bring the nation closer to full equality for transgender people.
