2018 Candidate Endorsements

**The EQNY PAC is an independent entity whose mission it is to support LGBTQI New Yorker through election-related work, including this endorsement process.**

For more than 25 years, New York’s LGBTQI community has supported candidates for public office who demonstrate a commitment to supporting the issues important to our community. In a time when transgender rights are under attack and when a major political party has adopted the most anti-LGBTQI party platform ever, we must stand by our friends running for office. Equality NY PAC upholds the tradition of supporting pro-LGBTQI candidates across New York so that we can continue to move this great state forward to support and protect all LGBTQI people. Please take a moment to contribute to the PAC here.
