Attorney Christina DiEdoardo and the members of Project Marsha (a collective of volunteer lawyers and other professionals) return to the library for a hands-on seminar to help Transgender Californians, including those who are nonbinary, get their state and federal identity documents in order. The event will focus on a set of key changes to state law which went into effect on September 1, and which, among other things, remove the medical gatekeeping requirement for name changes and explicitly provide for the issuance of nonbinary identity documents in California, as well as an update on the difficulties Trans people have faced obtaining or maintaining official government identification.
While the event is focused on the Transgender community, all are welcome.
Special note: The Cal football team is hosting a homegame 10/13, which significantly impacts parking in downtown Berkeley. Event attendees are encouraged to take public transit to this event. Please check 511.org to identify the best route to the Berkeley Public Library.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Berkeley Public Library. Thank you for your support!
