Driver's License Issues

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) issued a memo on January 26, 2024, to rescind a longstanding policy that allowed Floridians to update their gender markers on state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards with supporting documentation. For more information about this memo, resources and FAQ's, please click here.



Transgender and nonbinary people, especially communities of color, continue to face unthinkable levels of harassment, discrimination, and violence. The repeal of a number of protections for transgender people has only made their lives more dangerous. 

To raise awareness of issues like these and to advocate for Florida’s transgender community, we established TransAction in 2014. Through petitions, news alerts, rallies, and educational opportunities, TransAction Florida is a leading voice in responding to attacks on transgender people. Additionally, the program has conducted hundreds of diversity trainings throughout the state at major corporations, health care systems, law enforcement agencies, faith organizations, schools, and universities. In doing so, creating a broader base of understanding and multi-level support from societal institutions which interface with the transgender community.

Our work focuses on social justice issues critical to the transgender and nonbinary community, such as incarceration, violence, engagement with law enforcement, quality health care, and homelessness issues.

In addition to our transgender education and advocacy efforts, we produce and maintain a Transgender Resource Guide, a publication that provides a statewide directory of quality, transgender-friendly service providers from across the state.
