We applaud the landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that the 1964 Civil Rights Act holds equal workplace protections for LGBTQ citizens.

Our CEO, Karen Haycox adds, “I am moved by the commitment of the plaintiffs, Aimee Stephens, Donald Zarda and Gerald Lynn Bostock, who so bravely took their very personal fights forward, paving the way for fairness and equality for all, under the law.”

This decision encourages Habitat NYC in our commitment to provide safe, affordable housing for all New Yorkers, including LGBTQ people. We are proud to join with our partners HPD, Riseboro and Pennrose, on Haven Green, which will provide 1232 units of deeply affordable LGBTQ-friendly senior housing in Little Italy.
