It’s complicated. It’s expensive. And it’s vital.
Pro Bono Students Canada has partnered with Sketch, a Toronto-based organization, to provide a Transgender I.D. Clinic since September.
The clinic provides legal assistance with ID applications, name changes, gender marker changes and other related issues and is free for transgender youth (16-29) who are navigating poverty, living homeless, or on the margins.
To find out more about the importance of this issue and the work that PBSC is doing at the clinic, check out the article featured here:
