Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund
About Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund
Founded in 2003, the Transgender Legal Defense & Educational Fund (TLDEF) is a national organization committed to advancing justice and equity for transgender people through impact litigation, direct legal services, advocacy, and public education. In recent months TLDEF secured a landmark settlement on behalf of one of our clients, resulting in one of the nation’s strongest jail policies to protect transgender people in custody. TLDEF has also worked with insurance providers, labor unions, and private and private employers to increase nationwide access to transgender healthcare in unprecedented ways. And we’re just getting started.
