Bet Tzedek is committed to pursuing justice for people of all gender identities and expressions. We leverage our unique legal expertise, extensive pro bono resources, and long-standing partnerships with trusted leaders and organizations in the LGBTQ+ community to support transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming individuals. Bet Tzedek helps members of the transgender community receive access to medical care and coverage; live free from employment discrimination and retaliation; negotiate landlord-tenant disputes, evictions, and denials to housing or shelter; and fight discrimination at school.
We advocate for gender affirming rights by offering clinics and direct representation to help individuals with health insurance and benefits denials, discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations.
Bet Tzedek supports transgender and gender non-conforming individuals with updating their legal names and gender markers on identification documents to align with their gender identity. These documents are essential for applying for public benefits, receiving healthcare, starting new jobs, and enrolling in school.
