Thursday, 2:15pm - 3:15pm

Room 123
 
Join a conversation about what to expect when traveling domestically and internationally and the obstacles encountered by transgender individuals. Come learn about your legal rights and remedies when flying by air, how to prepare for the airport, and what to do if you experience discrimination while traveling. Participants will also leave with an understanding of how to change the name/gender on travel documents and file complaints against CBP/TSA, what to do if their immigration documents don’t match their home country’s passport, and updates to federal law and policy.
