Lavender Rights Project advances a more just and equitable society by providing low-cost civil legal services and community education centered in values of social justice for trans and queer low-income people and other marginalized communities. Through direct representation and community engagement, our by-and-for services aim to radically re-imagine the legal landscape for LGBTQ+ people while building community resilience, encouraging self-advocacy, and asserting the rights of marginalized populations. www.lavenderrightsproject.org
Lavender Rights Project specializes in direct legal services to members of the trans and queer community, including anti-discrimination, wills and estate management, family law, dependency, and all trans / transition-related legal matters.
This work is too big to do alone; therefore, the Lavender Rights Project has made coalition-building a central part of our efforts as we actively collaborate with referral / resource partners, community coalition partners, and collaborative program partners in order to effectively serve the intersectional realities of our clients.
By providing programming and educational opportunities, the Lavender Rights Project aims to create trans and queer community resiliency through increasing community knowledge, skills, access to, and resources about legal rights.
Due to the recognized need for trans- and queer-competent mediators, the Lavender Rights Project’s services have expanded to include mediation for a variety of conflicts, such as employment law, family law, and public accommodations discrimination.
