NYLPI Advocates for Transgender and Non-Binary People in Albany For LGBTQI Advocacy DayApril 28, 2022
Dozens of advocates and community members from around the state gathered in Albany and online to support this year’s advocacy theme, “Leave No One Behind: Protecting and Empowering the Most Vulnerable Community Members,” with policy priorities and panel events that emphasized those in the LGBTQI community who disproportionately get left behind: transgender and non-binary (TGNB) individuals, specifically TGNB Black and Brown individuals, and LGBTQI youth.
In partnership with the NEW Pride Agenda, Advocacy Day panelists also discussed the importance of the recently introduced Lorena Borjas transgender and gender non-binary (TGNB) wellness and equity fund (A9418), which would achieve economic justice by thoroughly investing in New York’s TGNB communities, ensuring equity in access to vital resources and the ability for TGNB New Yorkers to thrive. The equity fund would be crucial to those the UndocuCare TGNCI+ project serves by allocating funds to programs that coordinate inclusive healthcare for those who identify as transgender, non-binary, non-conforming or intersex, and by increasing the capacity of healthcare professions to effectively provide gender-affirming care.
