ODDS AND ENDS
Birth Certificate Problems in Illinois?
Cole Thaler at Lambda Legal advises us that the ACLU, one of Lambda Legal’s ally organizations, is taking a fresh look at the Illinois Department of Public Health’s problematic policy for change of sex designation on birth certificates. They are asking for people who have been harmed by the policy to contact them. If interested, please contact Jodie Clagg at the ACLU via Jclagg@aclu.org.
