“We share a commitment to supporting trans people within and outside the legal profession.”
The National Trans Bar Association (NTBA) was founded in 2016. Our members hail from different regions of the United States and professional backgrounds. We are diverse in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, and age. We work in government, law firms, and the nonprofit sector. We share a commitment to supporting trans people within and outside the legal profession.
Together we are working to build an organization that welcomes individuals who have historically been underrepresented in the legal profession including trans and cisgender women and femmes, people of color, people who have experienced poverty, people who have been criminalized or have had criminal justice system involvement, and members of immigrant communities.
We also welcome people from a range of areas in the legal profession including solo practice, law firms of all sizes, non-profit and social justice organizations, and government, in addition to those working primarily on trans rights advocacy and litigation.
