TransAction South Dakota’s Black Hills Name Change Clinic a huge success!
Our Black Hills Name Change Clinic, which took place in Rapid City, South Dakota, on August 5th and 6th 2017, was a huge success. On Saturday August 5th we had 9 recipients, on Sunday August 6th we had 3 recipients in Rapid City and 1 recipient in Pierre which we did on our way home to Sioux Falls on Sunday evening.
Yesterday, Monday August 7th, I had a transgender individual contact me from Spearfish, SD who wasn’t able to attend our name change clinic. Happily, I was able to help this person get the forms completed properly via email, and our treasurer has already sent checks to this person via US Postal Service to cover court costs and newspaper legal notice for 4 consecutive weeks. That is a total of 14 name change recipients within a 3 day period of time.
On June 10th of this year we put on a name change clinic in Sioux Falls where we had 5 recipients on the day of our clinic, plus 2 in July. My name change was also covered by TransAction South Dakota before while I was a non-officer board member for a total of 22 name changes to date 🙂
Transgender people changing the lives of transgender people in South Dakota. How much better does that get?
