On June 4th, I participated in a panel hosted by the newspaper The ALT on sexual harassment legislation, past, present, and future. Susan Arbetter of WCNY radio moderated the event where I was joined by employment attorney Sarah Burger, political strategist and columnist Alexis Grenell, and Leah Hebert, one of the victims who was harassed by Vito Lopez, a former Assemblymember who resigned after his conduct became public.  The discussion was extremely useful for me as a legislator trying to figure out the best way to stop such behaviors by people in power, whether in the public or private sector.  The video can be viewed at
