Immediately after law school, Anya Morgan worked for the Northwest Justice Project in Seattle, Washington, assisting low-income transgender people with name and gender marker changes, health insurance appeals, and access to public benefits. Her work was funded by a Texas Law Julius Glickman Fellowship in Public Interest Law. Following her fellowship, she worked in Seattle as an attorney with the Lavender Rights Project, a nonprofit that provides civil legal services to trans and queer low-income people and other marginalized communities.

At Texas Law, Anya participated in the Domestic Violence Clinic and the Civil Rights Clinic, and helped lead pro se clinics for the Mithoff Pro Bono Program’s Trans Name and Gender Marker Project. She was a founding board member of the Texas Chapter of the National Lawyers’ Guild, pro bono director of OUTLaw, and a board member of Getting Radical in the South (the GRITS conference). She interned with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project in New York and the Texas Civil Rights Project in Austin.
