The Transgender Law Center is an excellent resource for transgender people. I relied on their ID Please publication to figure out how to get my name and gender changed in California. Their EEOC win, regarding Mia Macy, was a tremendous, world-shattering decision. Thank you, TLC!
What can you say about a small group of people that have changed the life of a whole section of society with no pretense or motive. Watching a group of people give beyond their power is inspiring. Every transgender person in this country owes them a thank you. I wake everyday grateful that I made the call to TLC. I am honored to call them my "TEAM". With the help of TLC the world is better place and that is also their intention and single goal. They give and give with their time, friendship and heart felt work. TLC is truly a non-profit, and I don't think I have ever met another group of devoted individuals to a cause as them.
I have contacted the Transgender Law Center on numerous occasions and they have always went above and beyond each time; giving me advice, suggestions and offering to contact an individual or company/business when needed (for example, social security when they were dragging their feet for weeks on changing my gender within their system). Very helpful, and courteous staff! Highly recommend.
