Need your name legally changed in Chicago? TJLP CAN HELP!

We are very excited to announce the MAY Name Change Mobilization event! During this event, attorneys and trained volunteers will help transgender and gender non-conforming folks file petitions tochange 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. 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. Last month we had our largest turnout to date and filed more name change petitions that ever before! Keep up the fantastic work of spreading the word near and far! The more names changed, the better!


Here are the details for the May mobilization:

When: May 27th
Time: 9am - 3pm
Where: The Daley Center, 50 W. Washington, rm 1202 (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 mobilization on June 24th. We send many thanks to those with the financial means to donate to TJLP and help make this event possible!


If you have questions regarding the Name Change Mobilization or know of anyone that would like to participate by either getting their name legally changed or by volunteering to help folks change their names legally, please let us know! Our contact information for the event is namechange@tjlp.org, 773-272-1822 (phone/text).

Get excited for this Mobilization!!!

And as always: Fight to win!
