Program Types: Legal Initiatives,

The 519’s Access to Justice and Legal Initiatives programs support underserved 2SLGBTQ+ communities to reduce barriers to accessing relevant legal services and educational resources.

2SLGBTQ+ communities experience many barriers to accessing justice systems, including lack of queer- and trans-competent services and experiences of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and other forms of discrimination.

With funding support from The Law Foundation of Ontario, The 519 is continuing to advance and expand our legal programming – through partnership development, legal clinic expansion, capacity-building initiatives, and resource development.
