The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) provides training and resources to ensure that culturally competent legal services address the complex issues LGBT immigrants face. Some flee persecution in their home countries or have experienced discrimination and trauma in the United States. Others need assistance in changing their gender marker on official documents or navigating a family-based immigration case.
