Speaker Quinn and Senator Huntley share the same concerns that are affecting New York City and New York State such Rent Control legislation, Education and school closures, Anti-Bullying in schools and Social Service programs.
On May 3, 2011 Senator Huntley met with many members of District Council 37 (DC 37) in her Albany office and at the convention center. Senator Huntley has supported the hardworking efforts of DC 37 and the millions of middle to working class people who are a part of the group. DC 37 spoke with Senator Huntley about legislation and other pending bills that would be very controversial or have their football spirit.
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.
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
