Seattle University Law Professor Dean Spade advocates a politic that goes beyond demands for equal access and legal inclusion of transgender people. In his book "Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics And The Limits Of Law," this legal scholar argues for a critical examination of legal structures, the state and social justice organizing.


Dean Spade is the founder of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, a collective that provides free legal services and works to build trans resistance rooted in racial and economic justice, and edits the online journal Enough, which focuses on the politics of wealth redistribution.
