The Sylvia Rivera Law Project stands in solidarity with everyone moving quickly to get a name change and update their state and federal identification documents before the pending presidential administration change. To aid in our community’s self-advocacy during these difficult times, SRLP has updated our NYC Name Change Guide and our ID Replacement Guide for the first time since 2014. We thank all the TGNCI community members and allies who put in the time and energy to edit these guides and make them thorough.
Inside, you’ll find all the tools and tricks to seal your NYC name change and waive the publication requirement to protect your privacy. You’ll also find out how to request and secure free certified orders in NYC and how to change your gender and name with Social Security and the Passport Administration before January.
It is important that we stick together. Please share this resource with your community and friends as well as via Twitter and Facebook. Take care and know SRLP has your back.
