Thank you so much for making our 15th Anniversary Gala – #Res15tance in Bloom one of Sylvia Rivera Law Project’s most successful events to date! This beautiful and joyous night was made possible because of everyone who contributed. Thank you to everyone who fundraised, donated money, spread the word, volunteered and showed up. Thank you to our community members behind bars and many others who could not be there that evening for driving our mission towards trans liberation.

About SRLP 15th Anniversary Gala

The Sylvia Rivera Law Project’s 15th Anniversary Gala celebrates our incredible communities and our 15 year’s worth of work towards trans justice. While this is a difficult moment, both politically and with the increasing violence against our community, our movement of resistance is growing stronger than ever. Our communities and allies have been supporting one another throughout time and we will take a moment to celebrate 15 years worth of resilience, progress and resistance!

All of the resources we raise from this event – from financial contributions to volunteer time – enable us to continue providing free legal services and building movement power with low-income trans people and trans people of color in New York City.

This event is a standing cocktail reception with a two-hour open bar and hor d’oeuvres by the Breslin, followed by a dance party with a cash bar.

Help us spread the word about the 15th Anniversary Gala through on social media by sharing our event link, with the hashtag #Res15stance.
