The Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP) named for civil rights pioneer Sylvia Rivera. Sylvia, a crusader throughout the gay rights movement, fought against the exclusion of transgender people from the Sexual Orientation Non-Discrimination Act in New York. The project continues to support the work of Sylvia, providing legal services for low-income transgender, intersex and gender nonconforming people. They seek to increase the political voice and visibility of low-income people through the use of training, public education and policy reform.
