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.
The message below is the one you will send to the California State Senate. Feel free to write your own or add your story or personal experience.
