Meet Lambda Legal
Lambda Legal is the voice for LGBT people and those with HIV in the courts — from state trial courts, to the U.S. Supreme Court; the lawyers of Lambda Legal are winning and changing the legal landscape for millions of people for years to come.
Lambda Legal does not charge for their services and they receive no government funding.
The following are just a few examples of current cases taken on by Lambda Legal:
Lambda Legal has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of retired minister Robert Franke who was thrown out of his assisted living facility because he has HIV.
In June the organization was cleared to proceed with a lawsuit against the Georgia General Assembly on behalf of Vandy Beth Glenn who was fired from her position with the Assembly when she announced her planned transition from male to female.
Lambda Legal depends on financial support from the gay community and you can join today by clicking here.
