COVID-19 PROGRAMMING UPDATE:
Due to the horrific and unexpected Coronavirus pandemic, NEW Pride Agenda is organizing a Virtual Town Hall series focusing on our communities’ most immediate concerns.
The NEW Pride Agenda, in collaboration with Columbia University, is developing a Civic Engagement and Public Education Project (CEPEP) which will work to re-engage LGBTQ citizens and allies in neighborhoods across the state about LGBTQ legislative protections and priorities.
CEPEP will be phased in over three time periods: NYC starting in February 2020, Westchester and Long Island in the Spring of 2020, and Upstate New York beginning in Summer of 2020.
NPA is building out our CEPEP programing in three areas:
- Understanding and activating Anti-Bullying Strategies in public and private schools; Dignity for All Students Act (DASA)—what’s working and what’s not!
- Having a conversation regarding Transgender identities; providing guidance on the implementation of New York’s Gender Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) as it relates to employment, housing, education and healthcare.
- Increasing awareness on sexual and reproductive health regarding access to—and the benefits of—Pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP.

NPA believes that LGBTQ rights are civil rights and impact the most important aspects of everyday life.

Our goal is to provide CEPEP programming starting in key LGBTQ-friendly neighborhoods throughout New York City.
