California Senate: Remove the Barriers in Name Changes for Transgender Californians

California's name change process is long, complex and expensive, creating barriers for low-income transgender people who cannot afford to change their name to reflect gender identity. Current regulations also pose a risk to the safety and privacy of transgender Californians by requiring them to out themselves as transgender.

Urge your Assemblymember to support AB 1121, a bill that would streamline the name change application process in order to obtain new birth certificate and to ensure that, later in life, their final wishes carried out with dignity and respect.
