Take Two, Take Action – 3/11 Weekly Legislative Update
On February 25, we first told you about SB 1199, a bill that would harm the most marginalized in our community. Now we need you to show up for our transgender community.
SB 1199 – criminal history investigation; name change
SB 1199 would add fingerprinting and criminal background check requirements to court-ordered name changes, and it also imposes additional costs and delay on people seeking name changes.
It is being heard in the House Judiciary and Public Safety Committee this Wednesday, March 15. Call the committee chairs and your representatives and tell them to vote no on SB 1199.
Equality Arizona Board Member, Abby Jensen, was interviewed by Mother Jones on this issue.
