UPCOMING CLINICS:

Cleveland | Wednesday, March 25 | 6-8PM

**In an effort to protect those most at risk of coronavirus complications, the March 25 clinic scheduled for Cleveland will now be a virtual clinic. You’ll be able to talk to a trained attorney over the phone or via video about the name and gender marker process. Please call the Legal Clinic Coordinator, Oliver, at (614) 502-7076 to sign in between 6:00 and 7:00 PM. Oliver will conduct a quick intake interview, then they will connect you to the next available lawyer. We will email you all necessary paperwork.
