Equality NY PAC is a political action committee dedicated to supporting candidates for public office in New York State who are committed to the civil rights and needs of the LGBTQI community.
Process & Pedagogy:
Our Endorsement Committee is comprised of a diverse group of LGBTQI leaders. Our 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.
Our Core Values:
- LGBTQI representation in NYS politics matters;
- An intersectional lens used in policy and system change is a must;
- Values over identity, helps implement strong statewide outcomes for the diverse LGBTQI community;
- A commitment to civic engagement & leadership in local communities, creates knowledgeable and effective candidates.
2022 Endorsement Committee:
Carmen Neely, Andy Praschak, Cathy Marino-Thomas, Jared Trujillo, Juli Grey-Owens, Max Micallef, Melissa Brudo, Teri Wilhelm, Jimmy Rivera, Lindsay Jones, & Amanda Babine (Executive Director)
