Join us for a press conference on the steps of City Hall to announce the introduction of the law we proposed to add veteran and military status (summarized as uniformed service) to NYC's human rights laws!! This law will, once passed, set a baseline for all NYC agencies to ensure that veterans and military members (reserve, Guard, and active duty) will be protected and have local recourse for discrimination in employment, housing, and other aspects of daily life in NYC.
The press conference will be jointly hosted by the Public Advocate, Council Member Jumaane Williams, the Department of Veterans' Services, and the Commission on Human Rights.
Our veteran and civilian members are invited to attend and stand with us on this important occasion! Please RSVP below, and be sure you arrive at least 10 minutes in advance to go through the security checkpoint at the City Hall gate.
