NALP is supporting Street Law as our conference charity with proceeds from our virtual 5k Fun Run and Walk and direct donations from NALP members. Donate directly to Street Law here or sign up for the Fun Run when you register to attend the 2021 Annual Education Conference.
Street Law is a global, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization with more than 40 years of experience developing classroom and community programs that educate young people about law and government. For many years, NALP has partnered with Street Law to support the Legal Diversity Pipeline Program that partners law firms and corporate legal departments with nearby, diverse high school classes. Through classroom visits and field trips to the law firms and legal departments, volunteers teach lessons and lead activities designed to increase students' knowledge and interest in the law and legal careers.

Trans Day of Visibility
March 31, 2021
On March 31, NALP celebrates International Transgender Day of Visibility, celebrating transgender and non-binary people around the world and in our community. Transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals have always been with us but they are now increasingly openly bringing their talents to the legal profession. The past year has seen transgender lawyer, Chase Strangio, featured in the Netflix special "The Fight" and the NALP Non-Binary Task Force has been pleased to help NALP work with an ever increasing number of openly non-binary attorneys. We also recognize the ongoing discrimination and violence faced by transgender and non-binary people worldwide, especially trans women of color and Black trans women. If you would like more resources on non-binary people in the legal profession, please see our Non-Binary Resources page.
