Lambda Legal’s mission is to achieve full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everyone living with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work.
Impact Litigation: We select cases that will have the greatest impact in protecting and advancing the rights of LGBT people and those with HIV.
Education: We lead high-impact public education campaigns to help people exercise the rights they have and to build public support for equality.
Public Policy: We advocate for public policy at the local, state and federal levels to improve the lives of LGBT people, people affected by HIV, and their families and allies.
Making the case for equality in the courts and in the court of public opinion is a huge job and our staff can’t do it alone. That’s where you come in. Our volunteers help us extend our efforts to communities all over the country. As a Lambda Legal volunteer, you can make a difference right where you live.
You can volunteer as a Community Volunteer (general support), a Cooperating Attorney (become a member of the Lambda Legal Cooperating Attorneys Network), or volunteer at a Lambda Legal event!
