PRIORITIZING LGBTQ+ ISSUES

Recognition and respect are revealed in commitments to equity and real material improvements to the lives of the marginalized, as well as invitations to participate in leadership and the direction of our city. We must put words into action to ensure that our city’s promise of equality is realized in measurable equity. 

 

As our City Council Member and Organizer in Chief, I will stand for a stronger LGBTQIAPK policy by:
 

  • Creating a special Council Committee to repeal all walking while trans laws and any other laws that exclude trans women. 

  • Prioritizing providing medical care for trans people. 

  • Increasing diversity and inclusion requirements for any company contracting with the city and making relevant records publicly available. 

  • Ending "religious exemptions" to bans on discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

  • Decriminalizing sex work.

  • Increasing outreach and increasing LGBTQIAPK participation in organizations like community boards.

  • Investing in enforcement against discrimination based on personal identity in housing, adoption, fostering, and in the workplace.

  • Emergency and transitional housing for LGBTQIAPK teens in partnership with local CBOs

  • Create an advisory committee to the NYC Council made up of PoC organizations to address the specific challenges in those communities

  • Train NYPD on LGBTQIAPK issues in the handling of sexual violence

  • Train home health aides working with older queer communities on issues relating to those communities

  • Create an advisory committee to the NYC Council made up of LGBTQIAPK organizations to address the specific challenges in those communities
