A new, cutting-edge legal guide helps tribal legislators strengthen LGBT equality

October 23, 2012

A first-of-its-kind guide to help tribal governments adopt or amend their laws to recognize the rights of Two Spirit and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, is now available. It is the nation’s first guide for Two Spirit and LGBT equity in Indian Country.

Tribal Equity Toolkit

The guide was developed collaboratively by the Indigenous Ways of Knowing Program (IWOK) at Lewis & Clark, the Native American Program of Legal Aid Services of Oregon, the Western States Center, and Basic Rights Oregon.

You can read more about the guide in articles in Willamette Week, Indian Country Today and Think Progress.
