On March 27, I was honored to be recognized by Bailey House, the non-profit provider of housing and support for people living with HIV/AIDS, as a winner of its Rodger McFarlane AIDS Warrior Award. Along with my co-honorees, State Assembly Member Robert Rodriguez and advocacy organization VOCAL-NY, I helped spearhead the successful effort to secure a 30%-of-income rent cap for people in the city’s HIV/AIDS Services Administration Rental Assistance Program. I’m proud of what I've been able to achieve for people with HIV/AIDS in the 15 months since I first took office, and look forward to my continued partnership with Bailey House, my co-award winners, colleagues in the legislature, and HIV/AIDS advocates from across New York as we seek to end the epidemic in our state.
