We met with City Council Member Costa Constantinides, who then introduced Res 1514-2017, urging the MTA to add a member to the NYC Transit’s Paratransit Advisory Committee to represent pregnant women and families. Call your local City Council Member today and ask them to support this Resolution! Find your rep here: http://council.nyc.gov/districts/

Sign our petition to add a Pregnancy and Family Representative to the MTA's Accessibility Board now! 

Send a letter to the selection committee or write your support in electronically.

 

UP-STAND worked with Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal to create and support New York State Assembly Legislative Bill A586, an act to amend the public authorities law, in relation to priority seating for pregnant, elderly, and disabled passengers. Read our Memo of Support.

 

We submitted a Memo of Support for A7213, which would require full service family restrooms in public buildings.
