ERA Coalition Statement Praising the New York State Legislature for Passing Inclusive State Equal Rights Amendment

“Even as the basic human rights of discrimination protections and access to abortion are being eroded or openly repealed in states across the country, the New York state legislature took bold and decisive action to ensure everyone will be treated equally under the law in the Empire State. The ERA Coalition applauds the legislature for taking action on such critical issues at a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. Amending the NY State Constitution with an inclusive version of the Equal Rights Amendment should set the gold standard for equality across the nation.”
