Dear trans, gender non-conforming, two-spirit, and gender variant family,
This year has been difficult for our community, but we are all called to resist despite efforts by the Trump administration. TLC@SONG has received an unprecedented increase in requests about changing identity documents. As organizers, we see a pattern that can be addressed regionally instead of through individual cases. Join Transgender Law Center and Southerners on New Ground for a webinar series to clarify this process.
In each webinar, we’ll focus on a different Southern state, walking you through the process of getting your name and gender legally recognized. Through partnership with local groups on the ground we’ll include links to forms, guides, & local resources that can offer further legal or financial assistance. The whole series will kick off with a webinar training on organizing your own legal clinic to help others in your area obtain gender-affirming identification.
Through these webinars you will learn:
How to organize a legal clinic
How our network of cooperating attorneys can support community organizers
How to navigate the ID change process, including how to file fee waivers
If you have questions, email Regional Organizer Micky. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org
