Make a Difference in the Fight for Equal Rights this Holiday Season

Dear friends and supporters,

Every day, people around the country contact us seeking assistance and support to overcome discrimination and obstacles in their lives. There is one thing they all find when they contact us: Help.

We're here throughout the year, helping people overcome discrimination, and working to ensure that everyone can live freely, without fear of discrimination based on gender identity or expression.

Every day, we see it over and over again. People are forced to choose between being themselves and being treated equally. It happens at work, at health care facilities, at the hands of government agencies, virtually everywhere we look.

But we’re fighting back. Whether working for the rights of victims of bias-motivated violence or representing transgender people who have been fired or refused jobs just because they’re transgender, we’re helping to reshape the landscape for transgender rights.

We need your help to keep doing it. During challenging economic times, TLDEF is serving more people than ever who need our help. Your year-end gift will allow us to sustain our programs and fight for transgender equal rights.

We need your help so that we can be there for everyone who needs our help. If you are able to help this year, please be as generous as you can.

All of us at TLDEF wish you peace, prosperity and happiness as you enjoy the holiday season and welcome the New Year.

Thank you for your kindness and for your inspiring support of our work.


If you have already donated this holiday season, thank you!
