Equality New York’s 2022 Policy Priorities 


Equality New York (EQNY) is an advocacy organization that unites and amplifies the social and political voices of the LGBTQI communities throughout New York State. EQNY is the largest LGBTQI statewide coalition with 70+ organizations & 5,500 members & counting. Our coalition is led by a 35-person advisory council composed of LGBTQI leaders around the state.

EQNY’s state-wide policy platform focuses on five (5) key domains that affect LGBTQI individuals disproportionately in New York State. In each domain we have identified different statewide strategies that include legislation and budget items that will lead to advancing the lives of all LGBTQI New Yorkers and their families.
