Legislative Memo on the Equal Rights Amendment

The New York Constitution must be amended to include robust protections against discrimination that effectively work to hold our state and its institutions accountable for ending discrimination. By expanding the list of protected classes within our state equal protection clause, S.108-A (Krueger) /A.1283 (Seawright) proposes an Equal Rights Amendment that would do just that.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
