Lambda Legal, the leading national legal organization dedicated to achieving full civil rights for LGBT people and
people with HIV, has had an exceptional year. Our high-impact cases and educational programs continue to serve
our mission by securing new and expanded legal protections and by amplifying our message in public forums.
Below are highlights of our accomplishments.
Request your free Gear Up! a Fair Courts Toolkit for Everyday Advocates. Lambda Legal has developed this toolkit so advocates like you can get informed, and to provide a simple training to your community. The toolkit's basic message is that in order to protect our fair court system, everyone must be involved.
We believe in social change. We keep fighting for equality
because we have seen so much achieved for LGBT people and
people with HIV. Some days, the change around us seems so
remarkable, it takes my breath away. Some days it comes far too
slowly and we dig in and push harder.
Anti-discrimination laws are important tools for protecting non-discriminatory access to health care for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Studies demonstrate that anti-gay and antitrans bias permeates the medical profession, with adverse effects on the health and well-being of LGBT people.
Are you and your same-sex partner thinking about traveling or moving to another state but worried about whether your relationship will be respected? Or have you joined the growing movement to advocate that employers or organizations, when choosing sites for a convention or meeting, avoid locales that require or promote discrimination against same-sex relationships?
