Event description

Description

The New York City Human Rights Law is one of the most protective anti-discrimination laws in the country. The guiding principle of the Working with Transgender Communities workshop is to combat discrimination based on gender identity, gender expression, and create awareness about treating all persons with dignity and respect. In the workshop, basic terminology is explained.

Also discussed are challenges faced by transgender and gender non-conforming persons; protections under the NYC's Human Rights Law; the Commission's legal guidance on protections for gender identity and gender expression; and, the Mayor's Executive Order 16, mandating City facilities to provide bathroom access to people consistent with their gender identity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand key provisions of the NYC Human Rights Law that protect against discrimination based on gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation and the information and services the Commission provides.
  • Better knowledge of terminology.
  • How to create policies and best practices that comport with the NYC Human Rights Law, and environments that are inclusive and respectful.


This workshop will be presented by Vanessa Ramos, Managing Director of the NYC Commission on Human Rights
