    Name and Gender Marker Change Clinic
    Saturday, April 08, 2017 at 01:00 PM
    Roanoke Diversity Center


    The Roanoke Diversity Center is proud to announce that we will be hosting the first ever Name and Gender Marker Change Clinic to be held in Roanoke!

    Please join us on Saturday, April 8th from 1pm until 5pm for this free event as we partner with the Virginia Equality Bar Association’s lawyers who will assist you in completing the paperwork you need in order to change your name and/or gender markers on your state and federal identifications to more authentically represent who you are.

    Not ready to make any changes just yet?  That’s ok! The all-volunteer staff of lawyers will also be happy to assist you by answering any questions you may have regarding the processes of making these important legal steps toward completing your transition-related goals.

    Walk-ins are welcome, however if you would like to pre-register to ensure your appointment with one of the competent, trained, and confidential VEBA representatives at the clinic, please visit: https://veba.wufoo.com/forms/q10pl6uf0vnfuw2/

    Complimentary pizza and soft drinks will be provided by the RDC for everyone that decides to join us.  We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
