GENDA Know Your Rights Project
The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA), which historically passed in January 2019, protects New Yorkers who identify as Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming/Non-Binary (TGNCNB); by including gender identity and expression to existing human rights law. This covers the following domains:
Public Accommodations and Healthcare
Equal Access to Credit
Freedom From Harassment
You can learn more about how GENDA impacts the lives of those who identify as TGNCNB by watching to our video series, downloading our one-pager and/or attending a training in your area.
The New York Transgender Advocacy Group, launched their Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) - Know Your Rights Project in June 2020. The project will provide education, training, and resources to New York State residents. The main programming will include GENDA Know Your Rights: educational videos, posters, and in-person/online trainings.
