Jennifer Levi, director of the Boston-based GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defender’s (GLAD) Transgender Rights Project and a law professor at Western New England University, has fought for equal rights for the transgender community for decades. In 2014, she won a landmark case in Maine that allowed a transgender girl to use the girls’ restroom at her public school. Trial spoke to Levi about the evolution of transgender rights litigation, how schools can encourage inclusivity, and the steps they can take to protect transgender students.
