AUF Statement on Gov. Cuomo Executive Action For Transgender New Yorkers
Tyler Deaton, American Unity Fund’s Senior Advisor released the following statement in response to news that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is set to announce an executive order expanding protection from discrimination for the transgender community in New York.
“Governor Cuomo has again shown brave leadership for New York’s LGBTQ community, acting decisively to broaden protections from discrimination for transgender New Yorkers. This is a major step in the right direction, but it remains clear a lasting bipartisan legislative solution is needed that extends beyond Governor Cuomo’s administration. I urge Republicans and Democrats in the New York State Legislature to come together and update the state’s civil rights laws to protect explicitly and permanently the opportunity of every transgender New Yorker to be free from discrimination.”
The mission of American Unity Fund, a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, is freedom. We are dedicated to advancing the cause of freedom for LGBTQ Americans by making the conservative case that freedom truly means freedom for everyone.
