Women’s Equality Agenda Rally at Senator Skelos’ Office

From Long Island Exchange:

(Rockville Center, NY) – About twenty women are expected to gather today at 4:45 PM at a rally in front of Senator Dean Skelos’ office in Rockville Center, according to Lisa Tyson, director of the Long Island Progressive Coalition.

They will be rallying Skelos to bring the ten pieces of the Women’s Equality Act together as one piece of legislature, she said.

As it stands they are not going to vote on the reproductive act piece of the legislature, Tyson said.

The vote is scheduled to take place after midnight tonight.

“We have been in Albany lobbying every day”, Tyson said.

This is our opportunity to tell Skelos that we need the reproductive act piece voted on. The piece will make it so that New York state laws are similar to the national laws. If Roe V. Wade is overturned we will keep the same policies in this state.
