What’s Next for Williams Institute

What’s Next for
The Williams Institute

As we celebrate our 15th anniversary, we are turning our focus to new areas of research that will help inform sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy, including:

  • Analyzing the impact of state non-discrimination laws in the South, Midwest, and Mountain states;
  • Researching the needs of some of the most vulnerable segments of the LGBT community, including youth, the poor, and transgender people;
  • Addressing criminal justice issues, including harassment by law enforcement against LGBT people and HIV criminalization; and
  • Expanding our international programs to help LGBT people around the world.

We want to hear your thoughts on the plans we’re making, as well as the research questions and law and policy issues that are important to you.

Join us for a webinar on
