Transformative Justice Law Project: Name Change Mobilization
Dear Allies and Supporters of the Transformative Justice Law Project of Illinois (TJLP),
We are very excited to announce the start of our Name Change Mobilization project! During this monthly event, attorneys and trained volunteers will help transgender and gender non-conforming folks file petitions to change their names legally at the Daley Center in downtown Chicago. Volunteers will then provide follow-up support services to accompany folks to their court dates and help them navigate the subsequent name change processes at the Department of Motor Vehicles, Social Security Office, Department of Vital Records, etc. This event will happen once a month on the last Friday of every month from 9am - 4pm. Our goal is simple: we want to help as many people as possible legally change their names as part of our long-term goal of gender self-determination for all, free of government limitation.
Here are the details for our first mobilization!!!!
When: January 28th (this Friday)
Time: 9am - 4pm
Where: The Daley Center, 50 W. Washington, 12th floor
Do not fear! If you cannot attend this month's Mobilization, this is an ongoing project of TJLP and will reoccur on the last Friday of every month with the next two mobilizations already on February 25th and March 25th. We send many thanks those with the financial means to donate to TJLP and help make this event possible.
