Pass the Women's Equality Agenda!

This is a pivotal moment for women's rights in New York. Last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo introduced legislation as part of his Women's Equality Agenda (WEA) to achieve pay equity, end gender discrimination, and safeguard our right to choose.

Women deserve a vote on ALL of these issues. But state Senate leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein are blocking a vote on a part of the agenda that strengthens and protects reproductive rights.

Now is the time for action. Yesterday, I introduced a resolution in the City Council calling for passage of the full Women's Equality Agenda. Please join me in demanding a vote by calling Senators Dean Skelos at 
(518) 455-3171 and Jeff Klein at (518) 455-3595 and signing my petition here.

You can also help our campaign spread the word about women's rights, and other important issues, by making a $15

Help us make equal rights a reality for all of New York's women.

Thank you.
