The National Lawyers Guild San Francisco Bay Area Chapter has updated our manuals for the transgender community and their allies with the latest law and resources.
Our four manuals for the transgender community and their allies have been updated with the latest law and resources. Find out your rights or the rights of your friends, family members or clients by downloading the Criminal Law, Employment Law, Immigration Law, and Housing Law manuals (pdf).

-How are transgender arrestees housed in San Francisco jails?
-Can employers require employees to dress according to birth sex?
-Does gender identity help with an asylum claim?
-Am I protected by state law if I think my landlord evicted me because I’m transgender?

These questions, and many others, are addressed and answered, with emphasis on Bay Area law and practices.
