Support Gender Equality Today!

Because of YOU we are able to continue the fight for equality for women, LGBTQ and gender non-conforming people TODAY!

The Gender Equality Law Center stands with women, gender non-conforming persons and members of the LGBTQ community against all forms of gender-based discrimination. Our work includes affirmative litigation, legislative reform, policy advocacy, community outreach, and legal training.

Today, our hard-fought rights and gains are in peril. Our team of lawyers and advocates need your voice now more than ever to firmly stand for equality and justice.

With help from generous people like you, GELC can:

  • Litigate more cases with co-counsel in both the private and public sector, including signing onto more amici (or friend of the court) briefs.
  • Maintain and operate our free Intake Hotline and Legal Clinic so that we can serve more victims of gender-based discrimination.
  • Expand our capacity to train and advise lawyers who are willing to take gender discrimination cases on a pro bono basis.
  • Expand our public outreach and access to Know Your Rights Information about gender-based discrimination.
  • Continue to speak out against gender bias and to use our expertise to advise government decision makers.

And we can continue:

  • Pushing the reach of anti-discrimination laws by litigating strategic cases in court and before administrative agencies; this year we expanded the breadth of New York State and City human rights laws in areas of domestic violence, sexual harassment and pregnancy accommodation.
  • Providing strategic guidance, legal training and mentoring for private and government lawyers on the enforcement on anti-discrimination laws, specifically in the area of gender.
  • Collaborating with like-minded organizations to create a greater impact in public education and community outreach.
  • Launching a free Intake Hotline and Legal Clinic ((888) 833-4363) targeted at helping low and modest income New Yorkers with gender-based discrimination claims and to access pro bono or contingency-based legal assistance.

Stand with us against gender bias and join our growing community. Support the good fight knowing we could not do this without you.
