The LGBTQ+ Committee of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York is designed to provide a voice for the LGBTQ+ Community to ensure equal access to the Courts and create a welcoming and affirming presence for LGBTQ+ members of WBASNY.

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

The LGBTQ+ committee believes in Equality and Justice for All — with No Exceptions.
