Art Auction benefiting the work of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project.
The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) provides free legal services to low-income transgender communities and transgender communities of color. They also educate the public about trans oppression and support community organizing work that fights for the rights of their community. SRLP has assisted over 350 clients facing violence and discrimination in prisons, juvenile justice facilities, shelters, educational institutions and at the hands of the police since its inception in 2003. SRLP trains judges, health professionals, and other community organizations on how to provide respectful and affirming services. The most pressing issue faced daily at SRLP is the vast amount community members who are unable to access the most basic of services to meet the most vital of needs (such as shelter, health care, and education) because of rampant discrimination and violence.
