The New York State legislative session has started, which means we have some work to do! Developed with our membership, this year’s policy platform includes proposals to make housing, transportation, and nutrition assistance for low income people with HIV/AIDS available statewide. Legislation to fully legalize syringe possession. A major new investment in ending the hepatitis C epidemic. State legislation modeled on our NYC Fair Chance Act to create more job opportunities for people with criminal records. Work to speed emergency access to medical marijuana. An end to the use of condoms as evidence of prostitution. Restoring voting rights to parolees. And much more.
Read the full platform below, and join us as we fight to get it done!
