Legal Services

SRLP provides direct representation for low income transgender people and transgender people of color in three main areas. We have three projects, and if your issue falls under one of our projects, we may be able to help you. If we can’t represent you, we can provide referrals and information on a wide range of issues affecting transgender and gender-nonconforming people.

For legal help, please come to our Drop-In Hours or call 212 337 8550, extension 308 for a legal assessment.
