Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: October 7, 2013, 9:14 PM


Lambda Legal is a national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education, and public policy work.

Lambda Legal carries out its legal work principally through test cases selected for the likelihood of their success in establishing positive legal precedents that will affect lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, the transgendered, and people with HIV or AIDS. From our offices in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas, Lambda Legal's staff of attorneys works on a wide range of cases, with our docket averaging over 50 cases at any given time.

Lambda Legal also maintains a national network of volunteer Cooperating Attorneys, which widens the scope of our legal work and allows attorneys, legal workers, and law students to become involved in our program by working with our legal staff.

We pursue groundbreaking litigation

Lambda Legal pursues litigation in all parts of the country, in every area of the law that affects communities we represent, such as discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations, and the military; HIV/AIDS-related discrimination and public policy issues; parenting and relationship issues; equal marriage rights; equal employment and domestic partnership benefits; "sodomy" law challenges; immigration issues; anti-gay initiatives; and free speech and equal protection rights.

Lambda Legal's work ultimately benefits all people, for it helps to fashion a society that is truly diverse and tolerant. Our overall mission to combat sexual orientation discrimination in this country has become an intrinsic part of the struggle for civil rights.
