The project will provide legal services to low-income transgender Californians across the state, decrease barriers to the economic self-sufficiency of CA’s transgender community by working with social service providers, and increase the legal community’s capacity to represent low-income transgender clients by proving trainings and formalizing TLC’s network of cooperating attorneys.
