Gender Employment

The Gender Employment Non Discrimination has languished in the New York state senate for a decade and a half. The state assembly has repeated passed the GENDA bill only to languish in the senate.

Some organizations, such as Empire State Pride Agenda who allegedly are supposed to represent transgender people have curtailed or ceased operations believing erroneously that their mission (marriage equality) has been accomplished. Are they ever wrong. The climate for advancing transgender rights will be rocky with the incoming administration but we must proceed.

I mention a couple of posts back that GENDA was one of my main projects for 2017. Now I have decided to go full bore. There will be a couple of other projects but seeing GENDA passes in New York State cannot wait any longer.
