"Name Change Project"
June 10, 2016

10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

For many transgender people, securing a legal name change is an important step toward making their legal identities match their lived experience. But securing a legal name change can be challenging and involve interaction with the court system, a foreign experience for many people. The Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) Name Change Project provides transgender individuals with adequate legal representation, ensuring they can successfully complete the process and move forward with their lives.

At this event, the Name Change Project - recipient of the 2015 New Initiative Award at the ACBA Pro Bono Achievement Awards - is offering training to all Allegheny County attorneys interested in providing a valuable service to Pittsburgh's transgender community. The CLE will be led by experienced attorneys from Reed Smith and the Executive Director of TLDEF, the non-profit that organizes the Name Change Project.
