Mission & Values

Our Missions

  • The Association

    • The LGBT Bar Association of Greater New York is a voluntary professional organization dedicated to improving the administration of the law, ensuring full equality for members of the LGBTQ+ community, promoting the expertise and advancement of LGBTQ+ legal professionals, and serving the larger community through various pro bono initiatives.

  • The Foundation

    • The LGBT Bar NY Foundation leverages the strength of The LGBT Bar Association of Greater NY’s volunteer attorney network to provide holistic, pro bono legal services primarily to low-income LGBTQ+ New Yorkers.

Our Vision

  • We envision a world where being a member of the LGBTQ+ community in and of itself will not subject someone to additional legal barriers to creating a family, accessing healthcare, and working in one’s chosen profession.
