How to change your gender marker, name, or both, in Utah
Identity is very personal, and we should all feel in control of ours. For most people, though, the process of changing their name or gender marker is too complex and they don’t know how to get help. For our next free webinar, SixFifty has partnered with Angela Elmore of Utah Legal Clinic and Utah-based attorney Chris Wharton, whose 2021 arguments before Utah’s Supreme Court helped make gender marker changes available to more Utahns.

In this webinar we’ll cover:
- An overview of Utah law around name and gender marker changes
- What’s changed in the past year
- How to petition for a name change, gender marker change, or both
- Using SixFifty’s free tool to automate the required paperwork

Jun 30, 2022 11:00 AM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
