Governor Cuomo: “Unity will only be restored when this nation fulfills its promise of equality. Equality for all, equality of race, equality of religion, and equality of sexual orientation and gender identity. New York stands as a testament to that proposition. We are a diverse state. We are all different. We grew up different. Our diversity and differences have made us sensitive to discrimination and exclusion, and it has made us determined to the proposition of equality. We have zero tolerance for discrimination, and we define progressive politics as the aggressive pursuit and achievement of equality. That’s why New York has always led the nation on equality and LGBTQ rights.”
Cuomo: “New York, home of the NAACP, of the Seneca Falls Women’s Convention, home of Stonewall, has always been at the heart of the march towards equal rights for all. And while our nation’s march has been slow, too slow, together we have always pushed it forward. New York has shown that unity works.”
