Welcome to the Massachusetts Transgender Legal Advocates' blog! We will keep you up to date here about upcoming events and information. For now, mark your calendar with two important dates:
Wednesday, January 16, from 5pm to 7pm
(location to be announced)
Massachusetts Transgender Legal Advocates kickoff event.
Learn about MTLA and what we can do for you and for folks in your community. Some of our legal advocates (law students and lawyers) will spend a few minutes discussing the services we will be able to provide. Refreshments will follow. There is no cost associated with this event. This event will be alcohol free.
Thursday, January 17th, from 6pm to 8pm
(Cambridge Cares About AIDS, 17 Sellers St, Cambridge MA)
Massachusetts Transgender Legal Advocates open for business.
Schedule an appointment by calling 617-450-1353 and leaving a voicemail, or just drop in. An MTLA will meet with you to discuss your legal concern and will work to explain your rights, find you an appropriate free or low-cost lawyer, or organize legal representation through MTLA. After visiting MTLA, expect to know within one week whether we will be able to take your case. We will do our best to find someone else to take it if we cannot.
MTLA clinics will take place the third Thursday of every month beginning on January 17th, 2008.
