In New York State, gender identity and expression IS NOT a protected class in the state’s human rights and hate crimes laws. The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) has passed in the State Assembly the last seven years but is always killed in the Senate. 

GENDA is a proposed New York law which adds gender identity and expression as a protected class in the state's human rights and hate crimes laws, prohibiting discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations and other areas, and providing enhanced penalties for bias-motivated crimes.

Please let our New York State political leaders know Transegnder & Gender Non-Conforming individuals deserve equal protections.
