Shirley L. Huntley

May 03, 2011

Housing Works vistited Senator Huntley to discuss S. 2873: The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GEND) sponsored by Senator Duane. This bill is the first step to ending the legal discrimination and social barriers faced by transgender people.

GENDA will:

  • Ensure equality in education, housing, healthcare and employment regardless of gender expression or identity
  • Enhance safety for all transgender people, especially the poor and homeless at high risk of getting HIV
  • Promote culturally competent medical care and delivery
