Support the Transgender Law Center (TLC), which defends transgender rights.
Founded in California in 2002, TLC is the largest civil rights organization in America that’s run by transgender and gender-nonconforming people. It’s committed to improving the lot of transpeople, as well as those who thrive at different points along the gender spectrum, through advocacy and fighting discrimination.
Its concerns include the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project, which defends and advocates for this doubly (and sometimes triply) marginalized group; the Trans Immigrant Defense Effort (TIDE), which recruits and trains lawyers to provide pro bono help to trans immigrants fight deportation; and the Detention Project, which seeks ways to minimize and ideally end the abuses trans people suffer in prisons, hospitals, and other facilities that curtail freedom, be it briefly or for life.
