FTMInternational donated office space and served as fiscal sponsor for the Transgender Law Center enabling them to provide vital legal services to the FTM community, and is the Community Sponsor for the Transgender Law Center. Legal rights education for the FTM community has been provided by the annual California Transgender Leadership Summit sponsored by the Transgender Law Center, FTMInternational, FTMI San Buenaventura Chapter, FTMI San Diego Chapter, FTMI Sacramento Chapter, FTM Sonoma County, FTM Alliance of Los Angeles, Orange County FTM and others. FTMInternational President Levi Alter worked tirelessly on the case of a young FTM in solitary confinement at a California women's prison without access to his testosterone and succeeded in having his hormone replacement therapy reinstated.
