This month the New York legislature will reconvene to consider a package of priority legislation. HRC needs your help in urging lawmakers to include and pass a critical piece of legislation (S2253) in that package. S2253 (Hoylman) would repeal New York State’s Loitering for the Purpose of Prostitution law, also known as the #WalkingWhileTrans ban, which has resulted in widespread police profiling, unjust arrests, police harassment, and police violence—particularly in LGBTQ communities, immigrants communities, and Black and Latinx communities.
Please contact your New York Senate leadership and urge them to include and pass a repeal of the #WalkingWhileTrans ban in the priority legislative package.
HRC wants to know more about our members and supporters who are fighting for LGBTQ equality alongside us. Answers to these questions are optional and will be kept confidential.
