Legal Name Change Clinic for Transgender and Gender Diverse Individuals

Name-Change Clinic (Registration Closed)

Southern Legal Counsel’s Transgender Rights Initiative, in collaboration with Metro Inclusive Health, is providing an in-person and virtual clinic to assist you in navigating the legal name change process. We’ll walk you through the full process, including how to amend the name and gender marker on your government-issued identification documents (Social Security, Birth Certificate, Driver’s License/State ID, Passport, and more). Participation is free but registration is required so that we can get you the county-specific materials you’ll need ahead of time!

About SLC’s Transgenger Rights Initiative

Southern Legal Counsel’s Transgender Rights Initiative was initially developed to fill a gap in access to justice by systemically providing assistance to transgender individuals statewide in obtaining legal name and gender-marker changes. SLC seeks to prevent discrimination against the transgender community as a result of having legal identification documents that do not reflect individuals’ gender identity. There is a direct correlation between possessing inaccurate identification documents and being denied employment, housing, and other life necessities, which contribute to high rates of poverty, unemployment, and homelessness within the transgender community.
