Brooks Pierce attorney Sarah Saint will present at North Carolina State University’s (NC State) GLBT Center on Feb. 5.
Saint will provide assistance to transgender students at NC State who are interested in changing their legal name and gender marker. She will discuss the process for petitioning for a court-ordered legal name change and for changing their name and gender marker on government identification documents.
The GLBT Center serves students of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, queer, transgender, genderqueer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, non-binary, agender, intersex and questioning students and their allies. It strives to increase the NC State campus community’s understanding of diversity by working collaboratively to raise awareness, promote respect, and create a culture of equity, inclusion and social justice.
Saint has a particular focus on broadening awareness of diversity issues within organizations. She counsels companies, educational institutions and other organizations on compliance with state and federal civil rights regulations. Saint also represents individuals in obtaining favorable results related to their markers of diversity. She has experience handling disputes on behalf of trans* persons involving discrimination and obtaining legal name and gender marker changes.
