Gender Identity and the Law Workshop for Western Mass LGBTQIA+ Advocates

Friday, June 24 2022

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm


About the Event

There is significant need for social and legal support for the LGBTQIA+ community in Western Massachusetts. This event gives LGBTQIA+ advocates an opportunity to learn from local experts about the legal landscape affecting our community and how you can support people in accessing gender-affirming care and services.

Community Legal Aid is collaborating with statewide and local legal services providers to expand a network of attorneys trained to provide support in legal name changes. As partners in this initiative, we hope that you will join us. Your involvement and support can provide a lifetime of gender-affirming access for members of our community.


Learn from a member of Transhealth Northampton to explore family case studies of gender journeys to better understand the perspectives, experiences, and needs of this community.¬†GLAD’s Transgender Rights Project Director Jennifer Levi will also give a national political overview of pending and recent litigation and legislation which impact access to gender affirming care and services. And experienced attorneys will offer a substantive training of the legal name change process and connect you to resources where you can make a difference.

Register for the event today.
