Crystal Bar Soap will be donating 25% of every product sold from our pride collection to the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund
The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund is committed to ending discrimination based upon gender identity and expression and to achieving equality for transgender people through public education, test-case litigation, direct legal services, and public policy efforts.
Why We Joined
Every year we create products to celebrate pride and give back to the LGBTQAI+ community, and every we find that where our money needs to go is different. This year we asked our followers to help us pick our charity and there was a huge response to support Trans/Transiting humans. The Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund really stuck out to us as a grassroots charity doing incredible work to protect the rights of all humans. We proudly support them in their mission.
About the (TLDEF) Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund
Founded in 2003, Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to end discrimination and achieve equality for transgender people, particularly those in our most vulnerable communities. Transgender people have been subject to pervasive discrimination that has kept them, with rare exceptions, hidden from public view. While this discrimination has begun to lessen, transgender people still experience much prejudice and violence.
The TLDEF strategies include pathbreaking trans rights cases and "friend of the court" briefs regarding the key issues of employment, health care, education and public accommodations. They seek to coordinate with traditional civil rights organizations and other LGBT civil rights organizations. They also provide public education on transgender rights.
