The project will be discontinued after 30 June, 2019 if the Inner City Legal Centre can’t raise the necessary funds to keep it afloat.
Having recently launched the Trans and Gender Diverse Legal Service, the team at Dentons pride themselves on championing workplace diversity and inclusion for every employee.
The Australian-first service will be continued following a successful six-month pilot program which provided almost 30 trans and gender diverse people will pro bono legal advice.
“Our volunteers work closely with NSW Police to ensure that party-goers are respected by police and to keep misunderstandings and negative interactions with police to a minimum.”
“Each year, the quality and quantity of submissions we receive increases – which is a great indication of the work being done in the community”
“HIV-positive trans women have only ever existed as an ‘other’; an invisible subset of gay. This has been the case for years.”
The legal service will offer specialisation in the often complex legal issues that trans folks encounter.
