Sylvia Rivera Law Project

The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence. Much of SRLP’s work centers around ensuring the right of all people  to access the range of healthcare they need and to make their own decisions about their bodies, including trans people and those who are living in poverty or in prison. Third Wave’s grant will support SRLP’s Transgender Youth Initiative, which works to improve safety and access to respectful and affirming social, health, and legal services while simultaneously building the leadership of youth to participate more fully in movements for social justice.
