issues, and who aid people with mental illnesses in their quest for
dignity and independence, merit the recognition and appreciation of all
the citizens of the State of New York; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Sahar Khoshakhlagh upon the occasion of her designation for
special recognition by the Institute for Community Living; and be it
