​Despite the federal administration repealing gender related discrimination laws, New York Human Rights law still includes these protections and rights for us on a state level.

We are working to create a Rapid Response team, but until that is completed we still want to help you as best we can. If your rights are being violated, get in touch with us at roclegion@gmail.com

Please note that this list is not comprehensive, and is still a work in progress.
