Special Projects

FreeState Legal works with a variety of community partners to create outreach events and provide platforms for members of the LGBTQ community to express the concerns affecting their groups.

These projects include:

 

SpeakFire! Panel Series

The SpeakFire! Panel Series is a brave space for Black LGBTQ folks and allies to reflect on our histories of great resistance and love. The Center for Black Equity-Baltimore, STAR TRACK Adolescent Health Program at University of Maryland, GLSEN Baltimore, Black Trans* Advocacy, Sistas of the “T”, and FreeState Legal Project have partnered together to host these panels with the understanding that all black lives matter.

 

Story of My Name

The Story of My Name Project is a collection of stories from transgender and gender non-conforming individuals about what their preferred name means to them.
