Dear Friends of BALCONY,


All discrimination is wrong.

Many of us take basic civil rights protections for granted, but no state laws exist in New York to protect our transgender citizens from the purposeful discriminatory actions by state or public entities or by individuals.

The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) will fix that.

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to support the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act!

Statewide, victims of transgender discrimination have reported many forms of abuse: wrongful employment termination, refusal to hire, rental evictions and denial of public housing accommodations (which contributes to homelessness), food service refusal in public restaurants and threat of and actual physical harm.

GENDA would extend basic civil rights protections to people based on their gender expression or identity.

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to support the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act!

In New York, 78% of our fellow citizens favor the enactment of GENDA, because we recognize that any form of allowable discrimination by the state against any class of people is harmful.                                  

Please take action now!



In solidarity,

Andrew Pallotta
NYSUT Executive Vice President
