This interactive case-based training will give participants all the information they need to understand how the law affects those who identify as Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming/Non-Binary.
 
After this training, participants will:
– Identify what falls under discrimination with the passage of GENDA.
– Know how to report instances of discrimination in all domains of life under GENDA (e.g. housing, employment, etc.)
– Develop a toolkit of resources that they can use and share with their community.
 
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:
 
– Housing
– Employment
– Education
– Public Accommodations and Healthcare
– Equal Access to Credit
– Freedom From Harassment

 

The Center is committed to providing access, equal opportunity and accommodation in its services and programs. To request accommodation (i.e. ramp, ASL interpretation, etc.) contact Farrell Brenner at least ten days in advance at: 845-331-5300, or e-mail at f.brenner@lgbtqcenter.org.
