Senator Adams attended the Women's League of Science & Medicine Breakfast, and was one of the presenters to give a scholarship on behalf of the founders of the organization to a deserving student attending college this year.
Senator Adams joins New York Communities for Change at the Golden Farm Supermarket to rally with workers as they demand fair treatment on the job, better wages, and a contract providing them with better benefits.
Senator Adams states: "A federal judge today declared what too many New Yorkers already knew first-hand: that the NYPD has grossly abused Stop and Frisk. I am proud to have been part of the lawsuit that brought about this necessary ruling--a ruling which should lead to fairer treatment of all New Yorkers. I call on the NYPD and the Bloomberg Administration to immediately comply with the judge's orders, commit itself to educating officers to better protect the civil rights of the people they serve, and begin working with the communities where Stop and Frisk was most abused so that the relationship between citizens and the police can be repaired."
Senator Adams states: "This despicable act goes against everything Brooklyn stands for. And to desecrate the statues that represent the inclusive spirit of Brooklyn and the enduring legacy of the great jackie Robinson is unforgivable. When the perpetrators of this hate crime are caught -- and I'm confident they will be -- they should face the maximum penalty under the law." For more coverage on this story, click here.

Dear Constituents: It is August, and the summer is beginning to wind down. As the days have been muggy and hot, I hope that everyone has been keeping cool and staying hydrated. The uninterrupted availability of clean drinking water has caused us to take our valuable resource for granted, and we often fail to realize how regular human activities impact our water quality. Therefore, August has been designated as National Water Quality month.The ways in which we tend to our lawns and gardens, construct and maintain our homes, and dispose of our trash and solid wastes significantly impacts on our water quality. As water plays a vital role in everyone's daily functions, it is imperative that we maintain the cleanliness and purity of our drinking water.
