GENDA

August 17, 2017

Last month, the Rockland County Legislature unanimously voted to call on the New York State Senate to finally pass GENDA. GENDA, as you may know, is a piece of NY State legislation that would protect Transgender New Yorkers from discrimination. It has been passed many times in the Assembly but stalled in the Senate.  The Rockland County Pride Center is grateful to strong bipartisan county government leaders who believe in equality and justice for all, with no exceptions. Special thanks to Legislator Alden Wolfe for introducing this legislation.  (If you want to know how to be a reliable ally, check this handy infographic out!)
