Policy work and advocacy
One of the strategies of Transgender Law Center has been high-impact litigation, which resulted in EEOC's decision , affirming that transgender people are protected against discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Transgender Law Center continues to look at policy advocacy and innovative programatic works to reenforce the rights of transgender people in health care, employment, immigration, education, housing as well as safety within the criminal justice system.
It is my great privilege to be working with such effective organization.
