Membership

If you are in or near NYC, one way to become a member is by attending membership orientation and filling out a membership application. New Member Orientation meetings happen every 3 months at SRLP; please let us know if you have any language or access needs. If you can’t attend an orientation, contact the Membership Director Sasha Alexander to set up a time to speak more, and in the meantime, fill out an application and you’ll be on your way!

Anyone who agrees with the mission of SRLP can be a member. SRLP prioritizes the involvement of trans, gender non-conforming, intersex people who are low income and TGNCI people of color. Liberation is a collective process and we need your support!

What Do Members Do?

  • Attend general membership meetings to give feedback about SRLP’s work and learn about upcoming events and ways to become involved.
  • Members who have the time and interest can join SRLP’s teams to carry out the work of SRLP.
  • Members who are low-income trans, gender non-conforming, and intersex people or trans, gender non-conforming, and intersex people of color are strongly encouraged to get involved in the Movement Building Team!
  • Members who don’t have time for a regular commitment or don’t feel like any of the teams call to them can participate in one-time volunteering or event opportunities like helping with an event, a mailing, participating in Small Works Big Change and the Attorneys and Advocates Awards.

What Do I Get from Being a Member?

By becoming a member, you get to share your voice and vision of how we can be living our mission to ensure all people have the right to gender self-determination. You’ll get connected to amazing community members, staff, and Collective members who share our vision for liberation. You’ll have an opportunity to be part of our movement organizing and campaign work that is directly changing the ways low-income trans people of color receive health, medical, and social services. You’ll also get a beautiful sticker with our SRLP logo and tagline, “Liberation Is a Collective Process”.

If you become a member of our Movement Building Team, you can access leadership development and advocacy supports provided to low-income TGNCI people and TGNCI people of color.

Can I Still Get Legal Services If I Am Not a Member?

Yes. If you are low income and/or a person of color and are trans, gender non-conforming, or intersex, you can access free legal services at SRLP, even if you are not a member.

Do I Have to Pay Something to Become a Member?

No! We don’t have membership dues and we are excited to share new ways to create exchanges and build power. You are always welcome to give a one-time or recurring gift – we also have a new monthly sustainer program. If you are interested in giving back to SRLP with dollars, you can check out srlp.org/donate or we can give you more info!
