Take Action: Stop LGBTQ Discrimination in New York
Now that Trump is reversing protections for trans students, it’s clear that we must act swiftly to expand protections in our state law for the trans community.
GENDA (Gender Identity and Expression Non-Discrimination Act) would add gender expression and identity to the State Human Rights Law, protecting individuals from employment, housing, and education discrimination and expanding the categories for hate crimes in our state.
It’s time to call your Senators and tell them GENDA needs to be passed NOW to protect LGBTQ New Yorkers. Find your NYS Senator here, and urge them to bring GENDA to the Senate floor NOW.

- Trans women are disproportionately affected by domestic violence, and face numerous barriers to getting protection – now they also have to worry about their immigration status. Unbelievable.
