Isa Noyola

Transgender Law Center is excited to announce that Isa Noyola, formerly director of programs at TLC, is taking on the role of deputy director, and to welcome Lynly Egyes as litigation director.

Both of these new positions reflect TLC’s growth and commitment to the legal, organizing, and movement-building strategies that we have always believed central to the intersectional fight for trans liberation.

A translatina activist and longtime leader in the LGBT immigrant rights movement, Isa joined TLC in 2014 and has been critical to developing the organization’s groundbreaking movement-building and leadership development work. In this new role of deputy director, she will use her extensive organizational development and management experience to continue to build on the broader TLC vision of supporting and developing TGNC leaders across the country who are responding and fighting against state transphobic violence through policy, legal, and organizing strategies.

Lynly Egyes

Lynly Egyes joins TLC from the Urban Justice Center in New York, where she served as Legal Director at the Sex Workers Project. In her eight years at SWP, she provided legal services to sex workers and survivors of trafficking, launched SWP’s LGBT anti-trafficking program, and created a Rapid Court Response Program to address police profiling of translatina women. As litigation director, she will apply her extensive legal experience towards building on TLC’s impressive history of legal victories for transgender and gender nonconforming people.

We’re thrilled to have Isa and Lynly in these new roles – please help us congratulate them!
