Identity document policies have continued to improve over the last year, making it possible for transgender and nonbinary people to obtain accurate gender markers in their identification documents. New laws have been enacted and courtroom victories have been achieved, making it possible for people to obtain identity documents consistent with who they are. Some states now have gender neutral options on IDs, and medical requirements are slowly being eliminated. Come hear from lawyers and advocates about the new gold standards for ID policies. These advocates will discuss the administrative/regulatory progress in ID policy as well as the latest courtroom strategies for tearing down the gender identification policies of the past. Participants will join in a discussion on our collective work to make accurate IDs accessible for all people.
Location: Franklin 11
