Sylvia Rivera Law Project Inc
The Sylvia Rivera Law Project 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. SRLP is a collective organization founded on the understanding that gender self-determination is inextricably intertwined with racial, social and economic justice. Therefore, we seek to increase the political voice and visibility of low-income people and people of color who are transgender, intersex, or gender non-conforming.
Transgender Law Center
Transgender Law Center (TLC) changes law, policy, and attitudes so that all people can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression. TLC is the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all people. Grounded in legal expertise and committed to racial justice, TLC employs a variety of community-driven strategies to keep transgender and gender nonconforming people alive, thriving, and fighting for liberation.
The Trevor Project
The Trevor Project's mission is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
We are the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people. The organization works to save young lives by providing support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs on platforms where young people spend their time: our 24/7 phone lifeline, chat, text and soon-to-come integrations with social media platforms. We also run TrevorSpace, the world’s largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, and operate innovative education, research, and advocacy programs.
Black AIDS Institute

American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, Inc.
Founded in 1920, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, multi-issue, 1.7 million member public interest organization devoted to protecting the civil liberties of all people in the United States. Recognized as the nation's premier public interest law firm, the ACLU works daily in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The ACLU dares to create a more perfect union — beyond one person, party, or side, our mission is to realize the promise of the United States Constitution for all and expand the reach of its guarantees. The ACLU Foundation is the 501 (c)(3) arm of the organization.
Freedom Fund Network Inc
The LGBTQ Freedom Fund pays bail to secure the safety and liberty of low-income individuals in U.S. jails and immigration facilities. In tandem, we raise awareness of the criminalization of LGBTQ folks, who are three times more likely to be incarcerated than non-LGBTQ individuals. Because of whom they love and gender identity, a tangle of discrimination and poverty disproportionately puts LGBTQ people behind bars, and the impact is felt most acutely by transgender, brown, and black individuals.
Envision Freedom Fund
Envision Freedom Fund works alongside impacted communities to dismantle the oppressive and interconnected criminal legal and immigration systems. With freedom as our guiding principle, we invest in innovative campaigns and programs that aim to win long-term, transformative change, while meeting the urgent needs of community members in the present.
