Pass Gender Identity Protections in New York

The New York Assembly in June passed the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) for a remarkable 7th time, but the bill has never received a vote in the State Senate. It's past time for the Senate to act. Please send a message to your state senator today urging him or her to exercise leadership to pass GENDA this year.

There's still no state law in New York prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression in employment, housing, and public accommodations. Transgender New Yorkers are frequently denied employment, evicted from their homes, or harassed in public because of their gender identity. The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act would ensure that no one can be discriminated against because of who they are. Please send a message to Governor Cuomo and your New York State senator urging them to work together and pass GENDA.



As a supporter of the Human Rights Campaign and equal rights for all New York residents, I am writing to urge the Senate to work together and call a vote on the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act adding gender identity to the state's nondiscrimination laws. New York has fallen behind, with 18 states and our nation's capital now providing more protections for their lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens.
