BROOKLYN, NY (5/17/16) – State Senator Kevin Parker honored Jahmilla Joseph, Assistant Associate Director of District Council 37, at this year’s 18th Annual New York State Senate Women of Distinction Celebration. Each year, State Senators nominate a woman from their Senate District who through their hard work and public service renders them worthy to be honored as a Woman of Distinction.
“I am proud to recognize Ms. Joseph as she is a true leader and advocate for marginalized communities and the working families that call these same communities home," said Senator Kevin Parker. “I appreciate the Senate for providing Members a platform where we can acknowledge special women from our districts. It is important that we highlight their contributions to our community and celebrate them not just today, but every day.”
District Council 37 is New York City’s largest municipal labor union, representing more than 125,000 city workers and 50,000 retirees.
