SUNY Old Westbury Comes Out for Equality

Post submitted by Adrian Matanza, Former HRC Regional Field Director

With Spring Break over, our organizers in New York are not stopping. In fact, we’re doing a whirlwind tour of Long Island’s college campuses. From SUNY Stony Brook to Nassau Community College, college students island-wide are making their voices heard. HRC’s New Yorkers for Marriage Equality intern, Ashley Fortado, sent in this picture of her on campus at SUNY Old Westbury. She got an overwhelming response. She also ran into the advisor of the campus Gay Straight Alliance and asked her to come to their meeting this week. It was so successful that Ashley and a handful of volunteers will continue to work on Old Westbury’s campus to make sure their state senators hear from them.

We’ll be on college campuses all across New York. The Real World’s Mike Manning will be joining us on May 5th at SUNY Stony Brook and on May 6th at the College of Staten Island. If you would like more information, contact
