The Power in a Name Project is a long-term organizing and advocacy campaign to affirm and uplift Trans and Non-binary folks in the state of Georgia.
This project will assist Trans and Non-binary folks in navigating the often lengthy name and gender marker change process by providing the resources necessary to make the current processes easier. In addition, this project will utilize grassroots organizing and advocacy to transform culture and policies in the state of Georgia. The project will work to take away barriers for Trans and Non-binary folks in legally changing their names and gender markers.

This report aims to highlight and lift up the critical research conducted by Trans and Gender Diverse communities to provide an intersectional analysis of the current state of health care experienced by TGD folx in Georgia. It furthermore seeks to identify the policies in place that both harm and help TGD communities, and how laws and policies play a role in the health and wellbeing of TGD communities by determining the extent to which TGD folx are exposed to social determinants of health such as racism, transmisogyny, and economic inequity. This report provides an overview of helpful language and concepts from the reproductive justice framework that guide SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW!’s advocacy. Finally, this report and its inserts offer an accessible overview of TGD rights and protections under the law in Georgia and the U.S. and what SPARK’s policy recommendations are to improve the health disparities experienced by Trans and Gender-Diverse people.
Spread the word about our policy report and the important information it provides by posting on social media!
