Who we are
Transgender Law Center is the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all people.
Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, we employ a variety of community-driven strategies to keep transgender and gender nonconforming people alive, thriving, and fighting for liberation.
Through our organizing and movement-building programs, we assist, inform, and empower thousands of individual community members a year and build towards a long-term, national, trans-led movement for liberation.
