Support TLDEF on Giving Tuesday

Gving TuesdayDear friends,

Today is Giving Tuesday, when people around the world come together to support the causes they believe in through their generosity and giving. By donating to TLDEF today, you are helping to achieve equal rights and an end to discrimination based on gender identity and expression. We face tremendous challenges, but also have unique opportunities to press forward and make the world around us fairer and more equal.

This is a special day to make a difference in the lives of transgender people everywhere.

Make your donation now.

Your gift makes a difference in people’s lives. It supports the expansion of the Name Change Project, which provides free life-changing legal services to transgender community members. From its roots in New York City, the project has grown to offer services in Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and elsewhere.

Your gift also supports our groundbreaking cases, like transgender teen Chase Culpepper’s federal lawsuit against the South Carolina DMV over its refusal to allow her to wear makeup and its demand that she “look like a male” in her driver’s license photo. It supports our first-of-its-kind lawsuit challenging New York City’s requirement that transgender people undergo surgery in order to correct their birth certificates.

We depend on your generosity to help the people we serve. Whether $20, $100 or $1,000, every gift helps, large or small. Please give what you can.

Make your donation now.

Thank you. We are grateful for your support. We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!

Best wishes,
Michael Silverman
Executive Director
