Herstory in the Making!
Join us on Wednesday, January 9th, to witness the swearing-in of NYS Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins to be the Majority Leader of the New York State Senate. (The Westchester Black Women’s Political Caucus has a bus going to Albany. Click here for Details.)
Senator Stewart-Cousins will be the first female Majority Leader in the her-history of the New York State Senate.
Senator Stewart-Cousins will also be making her-history as the first female leader of either house in Albany.
Senator Stewart-Cousins’ historic mark is as an African-American woman assuming the mantle of a position until now only held by men.
With the support of the voters of NYS, Senator Stewart-Cousins is putting an end to “three men in a room”!
AND this could not happen at a more important time!
We are returning to the time of total states’ rights which means that the individual states will determine whether abortion is illegal, or not.
Congratulations to Majority Leader Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins and to the voters of NYS!
