Equality New York, New Pride Agenda, and the LGBT Community Center are collaborating on an effort to advance four LGBTQ initiatives in the state. Leaders of the groups gathered at Industry Bar in Manhattan on January 27 to roll out the policy plan.
“New York is often viewed as one of the most progressive states in our country,” Equality New York executive director Amanda Babine said in a written statement. “However, there is still a significant absence of policies in New York that protect and programs that support LGBTQI individuals. In 2022, we have an opportunity to build new leadership, strengthen communities, and advance the rights of all LGBTQI New Yorkers.”
