Our statewide advocacy initiative, RiseOut, represents a shared vision of justice and equity for the future of the LGBTQ+ community in New York State.
Our legislative priorities, known as the RiseOut People’s Platform, were created in collaboration with dozens of LGBTQ+ community leaders across New York State. Together we are fighting to:
- Advance Equity & Inclusion for Transgender & Gender Nonconforming People
- Increase Access to Affirming Mental Health Services
- Promote Restorative Justice Principles
- Ensure LGBTQ+ Visibility & Affirmation
- Demand Economic Justice
