New Yorkers for Equal Rights

New York, NY | nyequalrights.org/

About Us

New Yorkers for Equal Rights is a Ballot Initiative Committee comprised of civil rights, gender justice, reproductive rights, and immigrant rights organizations advocating for the passage of the New York Equal Rights Amendment.

The New York Equal Rights Amendment is an amendment to New York’s State Constitution that adds explicit protections for people who experience discrimination. At a moment in time when we are seeing governments and courts peel back basic protections, this proposal embeds explicit protections within our state constitution. 

Adding to existing enumerated protections against discrimination based on race and religion, this amendment would explicitly prohibit discrimination based on a person’s ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, and sex—including their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes, reproductive health care and autonomy. This Amendment ensures that New York secures the strongest protections for all of our communities.

The New York Equal Rights Amendment will appear on voters’ ballots in New York State in November 2024. More information about NYER can be found at NYEqualRights.org or on social media platforms at @NYEqualRights.
