Honoring NYS Senate Woman of Distinction Susan Steinberg

Each year, the New York State Senate honors a select group of "Women of Distinction" – women from across New York who have dedicated themselves to improving the lives of others, enriching their communities and strengthening our state.

This year, I had the privilege of naming Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village Tenants Association Chair Susan Steinberg, who in addition to being a tenant leader, is a CB6 member, neighborhood activist and advocate for social and environmental justice. On May 7, she traveled to Albany to take part in an official celebration at which she and other extraordinary women from across our State were recognized for their invaluable contributions to their communities. You can see the essay I submitted about Susan for both the program and a poster, which was displayed at the event, here.
