Remove the Barriers in Name Changes for Transgender Californians

Take Action On This Issue

California's name change process is long, complex and expensive, creating barriers for low-income transgender people who cannot afford to change their name to reflect gender identity. Current regulations also pose a risk to the safety and privacy of transgender Californians by requiring them to out themselves as transgender.

Urge your State Senator to support AB 1121, a bill that would streamline the name change application process in order to obtain new birth certificate.
