POP UP Transgender ID Project

Posted: November 22, 2016 in Fight Back, For your information, knowledge is power, Solidarity

GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD)

We’re hearing your post-election concerns and questions, and I want you to know that we are here. We’re here for the long-haul fight for justice, and we’re here to provide immediate resources wherever we can.

One concrete step we are taking right now is to make the process of obtaining accurate identity documents more accessible for transgender people across New England.

GLAD has partnered with Ropes & Gray LLP and the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) to launch the Pop-Up Transgender ID Project. The project will provide free legal help to anyone in New England who needs assistance updating their legal name or gender markers on federal and state id documents.

You can find more information, and sign up to be matched with a lawyer for help, at www.glad.org/id.

Please spread the word to anyone you know who may need this resource.

Thank you for sharing, and thank you for being part of the GLAD family. Working together, we’ll keep moving toward justice for all of us.

We’ve also compiled a brief Q&A addressing some of the most frequent questions we’ve heard about the possible impact of the new federal administration on LGBTQ rights, and we’re here to answer any other questions you have. Please be in touch.
