Lambda Legal has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Trump administration’s recent executive order that prohibits federal contractors and grantees from conducting workplace diversity trainings or engaging in grant-funded work that explicitly acknowledges and confronts the existence of structural racism and sexism in our society.

Lambda Legal, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), and the law firm Boies, Schiller, Flexner LLP filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Edward Gladney urging the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse a district court’s order that granted summary judgment to the United States.
Represented by Lambda Legal, Democracy Forward, and the Michigan State University College of Law’s Indian Law Clinic, two federally recognized Indian tribes, a California-based coalition of tribes, a foster youth and foster care alumni group, and three organizations that work with LGBTQ+ and two-spirit youth in foster care sued the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
Lambda Legal and the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) led a coalition of LGBTQ advocacy organizations and legal aid groups in submitting a proposed amicus brief urging California’s Fifth Appellate District to reverse a trial court ruling against Maddie Wade, a former employee of Starbucks in Fresno.
Lambda Legal represents Sander Saba, a nonbinary transgender New York resident who is seeking an accurate New York driver’s license that reflects their nonbinary gender identity. The lawsuit challenges New York State’s discriminatory policy that categorically prohibits nonbinary people from obtaining an accurate driver’s license that reflects their gender identity, instead forcing them to choose either “male” or “female.” Saba, a 25-year-old New York University Law School graduate, is seeking an accurate driver’s license with an “X” marker.
