Personal Bio: 

Victoria M. Rodríguez-Roldán is Director of the Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Justice Project for the National LGBTQ Task Force. One of her priorities as Director is the intersectionality between the trans community and the disability community. Prior to joining the National LGBTQ Task Force, Ms. Rodríguez-Roldán worked as an Equal Opportunity Specialist in the U.S. Department of Labor’s Civil Rights Center, where she worked extensively on both nondiscrimination policies on the basis of gender identity, as well as disability discrimination enforcement in federal workplaces. While a student at the University of Puerto Rico, she became the first openly transgender member of student government and pushed the school’s administration for transgender accessible student I.D. policies. She also led a successful lobbying campaign for transgender inclusive driver’s licenses and state ID documents in Puerto Rico, which resulted in a gubernatorial executive order. Ms. Rodríguez-Roldán is a 2011 Truman Scholar and in 2013 she was selected as a Holley Law Fellow by the National LGBTQ Task Force. She holds a B.A. from the University of Puerto Rico, and a J.D. from the University of Maine School of Law.
