The Name and Gender Change Workshop will staff two workshops per semester, during which students will help clients navigate the process for obtaining a court ordered name and/or gender change, as well as changing their name and gender designation on government documents such as their birth certificate and driver’s license or State ID. Students will gain skills in client interviewing and interaction, the ability to read and identify court forms, familiarity with filing of documents. They will additionally gain experience with conducting outreach, and assisting members of an underserved community.
There will be three two-hour trainings and two client workshops. The workshops will be approximately three hours long. The maximum time commitment for each semester will be 12 hours. Students are required to attend both workshops. Dates TBA.
