With CREDO funding, Transgender Law Center continues the fight for liberation
The Transgender Law Center is the largest national trans-led organization advocating for a world in which all people are free to define themselves and their futures. Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, TLC employs community-driven strategies to keep transgender and gender nonconforming people alive, thriving, and fighting for our rights.
In April, CREDO members voted to distribute $43,530 to TLC, and the organization has since secured important progress and victories for transgender and gender nonconforming people, including supporting TLC’s general operations including impact litigation and legal support; organizing and movement building; and policy advocacy, public education, and narrative change work.
Here are some highlights of the organization’s recent work that was supported in part by CREDO members:
- Continued work on TLC’s guiding framework, the Trans Agenda for Liberation;
- Trans youth organizing and speaking out against anti-trans youth legislations;
- Continued impact litigation with wins for trans inclusive healthcare;
- Working with journalists to more accurately and effectively cover trans issues, including anti-trans medical bans and athletic bans.
To learn more, take a moment to watch two great videos highlighting TLC’s recent work, including a 2021 overview “We are transforming the world. Join us” and “Gender Justice Leadership Programs: Show Up For Trans Youth”
