Everyone is invited to the TransLAW's 2nd Anniversary Celebration & Fundraiser. Like last year, you will have tons of fun mingling with trans and allied supporters and friends. And based on those who signed as "Going" on Facebook, there is a large portion of the "Who's Who" in Trans circles and allies in this area who are going.
It is also an opportunity to raising funds that will pay for several months of client's needs. All proceeds go directly to funding TransLAW's mission, including direct funding of low or no-income individuals who require financial assistance in order to pay the numerous fees associated with transition-related name and gender documentation changes.
Light hors d’oeuvres and open bar (wine and the specialty TransLAW MarTini cocktail from 6:30-7:30 p.m. It is free with a suggested donation of $10 at the door. Please do not let lack of funds prevent you from coming out and celebrating with us.
Transgender Legal Advocates of Washington (TransLAW) was founded in 2012 by community legal advocates in Washington DC to better serve the legal needs of transgender people in the Metro, Washington DC area, which includes the immediate areas of Maryland and Virginia. TransLAW meets these needs by serving trans clients in a name and gender change clinic run through our partnership with Whitman-Walker Health, by training legal service organizations, and by training legal professionals.
To date, they have held many, many clinics and helped over hundreds of clients with name and gender change processes. They have also trained over 100 professionals in the legal and social service communities in how to better serve the trans population.
