Parents, caregivers, family members, as well as trans and non-binary people are invited to join us next Tuesday when we host an online workshop on Name & Gender Marker Changes with attorney Charlie Arrowood.
Register now for the online Zoom meeting on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
The name and gender marker change process can be overwhelming even if you are familiar with the courts. This workshop will provide attendees with information about the current name and document change process, as well as the upcoming changes that will go into effect when the Gender Recognition Act is implemented in December 2021 and June 2022.
Please note, the workshop will be focused on the law and situation in New York state, but we welcome attendees from all over for background knowledge.
