For nearly two decades, the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund has worked to advance justice and equity for transgender and non-binary people in the United States. TLDEF has brought needed attention to the epidemic of violence against transgender women, achieved groundbreaking wins in access to public accommodations, and had sweeping impact on trans-inclusive health care.
From our impact litigation to our legal services work, from the Name Change Project to the Trans Health Project, TLDEF is addressing critical and fundamental issues impacting transgender and non-binary people, especially those who struggle disproportionately with systemic racial and economic injustice.
Together we can provide life-affirming support to transgender and non-binary individuals and bring the nation closer to full equality for transgender people.
