Bill de Blasio on Civil Rights

NYC Mayor; Democratic Presidential Challenger

 


NYC Unity Project: invest in LGBTQ youth

NYC Unity Project: First Lady Chirlane McCray announced an unprecedented investment in LGBTQ youth by creating the NYC Unity Project.

Co-sponsored the Gender Based Discrimination Protection law

Ending Discrimination and Recognizing All Relationships: While on the City Council, Bill de Blasio co-sponsored the Gender Based Discrimination Protection law--one of the first laws in the nation to prevent discrimination against transgender New Yorkers.

He also co-sponsored the Domestic Partnership Recognition law, an important precursor to full marriage equality that required New York City to recognize same-sex marriages from other states

Increase NYC usage of minority businesses from 3% to 10%

Support Women and Minority-Owned Businesses: Minority and women-owned businesses constitute only 3 percent of New York City's government's spending. New York State manages 10 percent and has a goal of doubling that share. Bill de Blasio believes in the importance of un-locking the entrepreneurial potential of women and minority-owned business, and realizes that because of New York City's inherent diversity, purchasing from MWBE's invariably increases the amount of city dollars spent right here in the five boroughs. As mayor, Bill de Blasio will direct Small Business Services to dramatically increase the number of officially registered MWBE firms eligible for city contracts, and will empower a Deputy Mayor with the responsibility of increasing diversity in city contracts and procurement
