Yes, there are many events to attend this week, but first take a few minutes for progress.
We have a real chance to get bills passed in Albany that will make walking down the street safer for Trans women of color, stop the use of condoms as evidence, and help victims of human trafficking.
With just a quick call you can help rid New York of the "Gay/Trans Panic" Defense, make it easier for LGBTQ New Yorkers to start a family, and get benefits veterans wrongly discharged for their sexual orientation or gender expression.
Click the links above and then start planning the rest of the week, as there is a lot going on!
