The Joy Tomchin Community Grant is a small, non-restricted grant of funds made to a non-profit legal organization doing cutting edge work that benefits the most marginalized of the LGBTQAI communities. 

Red Light Legal is a sex worker-led legal services and community education project based in Oakland. It is their mission to reduce violence the stigma, discrimination, and violence associated with the sex industry, particularly for those who face intersection oppressions due to racism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and classism. Current projects include ongoing Know Your Rights trainings for sex workers (with an emphasis on the special needs of queer and trans youth,) advanced directive and identity document legal clinics, court support, and an online legal clinic.
