Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund

Mission Statement

Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) is committed to ending discrimination based upon gender identity and expression and to achieving equality for transgender people through public education, test-case litigation, direct legal services, and public policy efforts. 

Why Donate to Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund?

Founded in 2003, TLDEF has historically focused its efforts on those most pushed to the margins, including but not limited to Black trans women and trans women of color, trans and non-binary youth, poor trans people, and the intersections found among these populations within the broader transgender and non-binary community. TLDEF has lifted up critical and fundamental issues impacting the most marginalized transgender and non-binary people – violence and safety, health care and employment, access to services and public accommodations. These are the everyday issues facing transgender and non-binary people who struggle disproportionately with systemic racial, gender, and economic injustice. Despite increased visibility in recent years for the transgender community, achieving full legal and lived equality remains a challenge – even as gains are made, well-funded opposition forces continue to find new avenues to channel their hate. The movement for transgender equality must also find new ways to resource the fight for justice – we hope you’ll join us by making a donation of cryptocurrency to TLDEF.
