The Sylvia Rivera Law Project works to increase the political voice and visibility of low-income people and people of color who are transgender, intersex, andgender non-conforming. We do this by providing free legal services, building community, raising awareness, and advocating on issues relevant to our community members’ lives.  We use a multi-strategy approach to actualize change at every level of the system: we provide direct legal services to meet immediate survival needs, engage in litigation and policy reform to affect systematic change, and hold workshops, trainings, and community-building events to enact long-term sustainable impact.

Here is a glimpse of the crucial work your donation makes possible: 

  • Through community organizing and impact litigation, SRLP continues to demand safe, accessible, and trans affirming healthcare for transgender and gender nonconforming people and all low-income New Yorkers. Learn more about our campaign to repeal the regulation barring trans people from accessing Medicaid at http://srlp.org/healthcare.

 

  • In our Prisoner Justice Project, SRLP is ensuring the effective enforcement of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) in collaboration with SRLP’s Prisoner Advisory Committee, made up of incarcerated trans and gender non-conforming people. You can learn more about PAC and read PAC members’ writing at http://srlp.org/prisoner-advisory-committee.

 

  • Every month, SRLP provides free legal services to over 40 trans and gender nonconforming low-income people and people of color to help our communities meet their basic needs. You can find out more about our legal services at http://srlp.org/legal-services.
