From the Transformative Justice Law Project of Illinois (TJLP):
We are very excited to announce the September Name Change Mobilization event! During this 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. 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 the September mobilization:
When: September 30th
Time: 9am - 1pm (due to the hours to file Fee Waivers we will no longer be at the Daley Center past 1 pm)
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 October 28th. We send many thanks to those with the financial means to donate to TJLP and help make this event possible!
