Noah Lewis Joins TLDEF as Staff Attorney


We're pleased to welcome TLDEF's newest addition, Noah Lewis, who joins us as a Staff Attorney.

"I am very excited to be joining TLDEF and to have the opportunity to be part of the amazing work it does," Noah said.

"Noah brings a wealth of knowledge and we are delighted to have him join us," said TLDEF’s executive director, Michael Silverman. "We look forward to his significant contributions as TLDEF continues working for transgender equal rights."

While a student at Harvard Law School, Noah received the Dean’s Award for Community Service for his work with the Harvard Transgender Task Force, Harvard Law School Lambda, and the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund.  At Harvard, his work included assisting with the campaign to add gender identity to Harvard’s nondiscrimination policy and achieving improvements in insurance coverage for transgender health care.

After school, while living in Pittsburgh, Noah engaged in transgender community organizing, including leading a transgender study group, speaking at educational events, and testifying in favor of a county-wide transgender anti-discrimination law.

Before attending Harvard Law School, Noah graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. in chemistry and a B.A. in the history and philosophy of science. At Pitt, he helped lead a successful campaign to get domestic partner health benefits at the university.
