Process & Pedagogy:
Our Endorsement Committee is comprised of a diverse group of LGBTQI leaders. All Endorsement Committee members are selected from our larger Advisory Council, which helps us uphold the overall mission and vision of Equality New York. Our all volunteer committee continues the tradition of supporting pro-LGBTQI candidates across New York so that we can continue to move this great state forward to support and protect all LGBTQI people.
Through our rigorous process we identify what candidates we think will be best suited to help us advance the lives of LGBTQI New Yorkers. Outside of LGBTQI specific issues, we take an intersectional approach in all ratings. This includes us evaluating their positions on other social justice issues such as bail reform, immigrant rights, women’s rights, and sensible gun control laws, and much more.
