New York State Constitution with Juliet Gobler, Esq.
On January 24, 2023, the New York legislature passed the Equal Rights Amendment (“ERA”);New Yorkers will vote on its ratification on the November 2024 ballot. The NYS ERA would prohibit discrimination based on a person’s ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, and sex — including their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, and pregnancy outcomes. We will discuss the current equal rights protections under our state constitution, the gaps that a NYS ERA will fill –including preserving reproductive rights for New Yorkers– and the hundred-year history of the fight for a federal ERA.
