    Given the current political climate, there is a need for transgender individuals to get their documents in order, particularly with respect to legal name changes.

    The LGBT Center of Raleigh's Trans Initiative has assembled a team of lawyers, notaries, and peers to help you with the process of legally changing your name on your NCDL., U.S. passport, and with Social Security.

    Our lawyers and community members will be available to talk about the experiences they have had with changing names and/or gender markers on legal documents. Learning from others, and with the support of people who can help complete the necessary forms, the complex and expensive process will be more navigable. We will have forms, notaries, and witnesses on hand to support folks at various stages in working through their documents.
