President Biden: Accurate IDs for All Now

Trans, intersex, and non-binary people still do not have access to accurate federal IDs. This reality puts too many of us – particularly trans people of color and especially Black trans people – at risk of daily discrimination because our identification doesn't reflect who we are.

But President Biden has the power to prevent this dangerous misgendering on IDs – by directing all federal agencies to allow us to self-verify our own gender and to include a gender neutral "X" designation option on all federal IDs and records. For Pride month and for our everyday safety: Send a message urging President Biden to sign this executive order now.

Ensure Access to Accurate IDs for All

I'm asking you to show up for our trans, intersex, and non-binary communities right now, especially amidst the ongoing legislative attacks against young people across the states. Issue an executive order immediately that directs all federal agencies to implement self-attestation of gender markers, and allow for a gender neutral "X" designation on all federal IDs and records.

Currently, to update a gender marker in the social security system, on a passport, on immigration documents, or on any other federal ID or record – an applicant must submit a medical letter from a doctor attesting to appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition.

Without full access to something as essential as an accurate ID, trans, intersex, and non-binary people are left open to discrimination and harassment every single day – particularly trans people of color and especially Black trans people. But you can prevent this dangerous misgendering on federal records and send a critical message to LGBTQ communities nationwide: Our government sees you as exactly who you are, and wants you to be supported and included in this country.

We know you support transgender, intersex, and non-binary people. For Pride month and for our daily lives, ensure everyone has access to accurate IDs. Issue an executive order now.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
