Our purpose is civic engagement and public policy advocacy on behalf of New York’s diverse LGBTQIA community. We recognize the disproportionate representation within our community and strive to empower the voices of the most vulnerable among us by organizing our community’s unique talents around our shared values across the state.
The NEW Pride Agenda (NPA) advocates across the State of New York for LBGTQIA rights awareness, particularly for the most vulnerable members of the queer community.
NPA believes that LGBTQIA rights are civil rights and impact the most important aspects of everyday life from housing to employment. Working with a diverse network of communities and elected officials, NPA serves to educate members of the LGBTQIA community and allies, as well as the general public, about our legal protections and rights.
