SWOP-Chicago Community Activism Legal Clinic
TJLP is a group of radical activists, social workers, and organizers who provide support, advocacy, and free, holistic criminal legal services to poor and street-based transgender people in Illinois. We are deeply committed to the universal right of gender self-determination, a long term goal of abolishing the prison-industrial complex, and commitment to transformative justice models as necessary alternatives to the criminal punishment system.
TJLP provides free, zealous, life-affirming, and gender- affirming holistic criminal legal services to low-income and street based transgender and gender non-conforming people targeted by the criminal legal system.
During the Name Change Mobilization, attorneys and trained volunteers assist transgender and gender non-conforming folks file petitions to change their legal names at the Daley Center in downtown Chicago.
