The Transgender Law Center (TLC) is a civil rights organization advocating for transgender communities. Every day TLC connects transgender people and their families to technically sound and culturally competent legal services, increases acceptance and enforcement of laws and policies that support transgender communities, and works to change laws and systems that fail to incorporate the needs and experiences of transgender people.
Policy & Administrative Advocacy: TLC launched a statewide movement to create The Insurance Gender Non-Discrimination Act and the CA LGBT Health & Human Services Network; helped San Francisco and L.A. Unified School Districts create and implement non-discrimination regulations; and helped start Project HEALTH (Harnessing Education, Advocacy and Leadership for Trans Health) to increase access to community clinics and discrimination-free health care reform. Legal Services: TLC provides legal information to more than 1300 people each year, many of whom receive more involved advocacy or representation. For instance, TLC represented Sylvia Guerrero in her petition to posthumously get recognition of the name change of her daughter, Gwen Araujo.TLC has held hundreds of public education workshops; current efforts include educating transgender community members about the importance of employment protections. TLC also provides legal training and technical assistance to lawyers who want to provide services to transgender clients. Leadership Development: TLC organizes the annual CA Transgender Leadership Summit, and is a founding organization of San Francisco’s Transgender Economic Empowerment Initiative. TEEI gives transgender job seekers the tools to secure meaningful employment and succeed in the workplace. TLC believes that developing the grassroots leadership of transgender communities across the country – and connecting the grassroots to the grasstops – is critical in advocating for transgender-inclusive programs and policies.
