Supporting transgender rights has been a priority for us since our founding in 2010. We know that stereotypes and biases based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and gender expression are inextricably linked. Our mission is to break down the barriers to equality created by these harmful biases.
Because we seek to end discrimination on the basis of gender, many of our cases focus on upholding the rights of transgender people. We serve many transgender clients who face discrimination based on their gender identity or expression in several different spheres of life, including employment, healthcare, and education.
