Transgender Legal Rights

At the LA LGBT Center, Bet Tzedek’s Transgender Medical-Legal Partnership provides Legal Name/Gender Marker Change Clinics, and assistance with health insurance and benefits denials, discrimination, evictions, and shelter denials.

Undocumented Parents & Family Preparedness

The Red Cross estimates that there are approximately 250,000 U.S. citizen children of undocumented parents living in Los Angeles County. Bet Tzedek is committed to helping families prepare for the aftermath of a child having one or both of his/her parents removed from the United States. Please click here if you are interested in volunteering for this program.
