More than ever before, identity documents, such as birth certificates, driver’s licenses, and passports are being scrutinized in a wide range of situations. Whether traveling abroad, obtaining various governmental benefits, or enrolling in school, these legal papers play a key role in one’s ability to access rights and services. Furthermore, for young people in school, on a team, or engaged in other activities, the importance of one’s name and sex aligning with gender identity carries particular significance and can undermine privacy. This workshop will provide an overview of the current issues, challenges, and requirements for modifying such documents. With greater recognition of the gender diversity of young people, there have been a number of positive changes in what this process looks like. In addition, we will hold an Identity Documents Clinic all day Saturday in which legal providers will be available to help clarify and fill out paperwork as well as speak about individual needs and situations.
