National Level Consultation
HRLN organised a National Level Consultation on the 28th and 29th of December 2019 to collate data on policies and schemes related to transgender persons that have been started by different states and the differential manner in which individual states have attempted to implement the directives in the NALSA Judgement. It was also critical to identify the points at which legal intervention is both necessary and could be done to aid and catalyse the work that is already being done by activists, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and the movements (both large scale national level movements and the localized state level movements).
The primary concern was to chart out a an effective future plan and strategy following the passing of the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act, 2019. Also to fill in the missing gaps that could be better tackled through legal intervention therefore to move ahead with getting the state to implement schemes specific to Transgender Persons much more effectively.
