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.
