Say My Name!


It's been a year since we launched the Name Change Project, with the simple but revolutionary idea that every transgender person who needs a lawyer to help with a legal name change deserves to have one.  We couldn't be happier with the results.  What started out small has blossomed into an enormous project nurturing relationships with seventeen of the world's most prestigious law firms, more than 120 lawyers, and over 170 community members who have been served by the project.

And we're only a year into it.
