The Sylvia Rivera Law Project works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence. Learn more about SRLP.
Our legal services drop-in hours are a place for people to come if they have legal questions, or want SRLP to represent them in legal issues. The main issues we work on are name changes, changing id cards and birth certificates, immigration issues, public benefits like welfare and SSI, and advocacy for prisoners.
We would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of you who joined us for the teach in, all of you who supported this moment from a far, those who came before us and those making change in this world simply by existing or resisting.
For those of you who missed it, check out the amazingness of SRLP community member Jeannine Tang, collective member, Naomi Clark and SRLP staff, Reina Gossett and Pooja Gehi!
