In the face of an increasingly hostile federal judiciary, affirmative and impact litigation cannot be our only avenue for vindicating civil rights. This panel explores the many tools that transgender and nonbinary individuals can use instead of the lengthy and uncertain path of litigation. We will share vital and practical information on how to use Structured Negotiation, an alternative dispute resolution mechanism with a non-adversarial mindset; how to file complaints to pursue rights and benefits with administrative agencies; and other helpful information on how to help trans and nonbinary people navigate legal and administrative systems to get their needs met.
Speakers: Arli Christian (ACLU); Noah Lewis (Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund); Krisztina Szabo (Whitman-Walker Health); Jessie Workman (New York City Commission on Human Rights)
