Mission Statement Lavender Rights Project elevates the power, autonomy, and leadership of the Black intersex & gender diverse community through intersectional legal and social services. We utilize the law as an organizing principle to affirm our civil rights and self-determination.
Our organization disrupts oppressive systems that target Black gender diverse and intersex communities of color and lead to disproportionate levels of poverty, housing disparities, and gender-based violence, especially among Black and Indigenous people.
Vision Statement Lavender Rights Project is creating a world in which the Black and Indigenous gender diverse communities are at the forefront of liberation and recognized for our power to build. Representation matters, and we are an organization led by Black trans women and femmes. By following their wisdom and nuanced understanding of community needs, we will build decolonized systems of care and support for our people.
We focus on providing criminal and civil rights law services that serve Black Transgender and LGBTQ+ communities. We also fight to achieve housing and economic justice and prevent gender-based violence. Our services are low-cost/pro-bono.
