The LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) Committee of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York is designed to provide a voice for the LGBT Community as it encounters the law and create a welcoming and affirming presence for LGBT members of WBASNY.

The Committee works collaboratively with other committees of WBASNY in several different ways.  We bring LGBT issues to the attention of the membership, comment on pending or proposed legislation pertaining to LGBT issues, and seek appropriate opportunities to join amicus briefs in support of LGBT legal rights.

In addition to the quarterly board meetings, the Co-Chairs of the Committee, as necessary and when possible, will schedule meetings in person and/or by telephone conference call, so that the committee members can timely respond to LGBT issues.
