Rosie’s Statement on Puerto Rico

“I am devastated by the news of the enormous damage that has occurred in Puerto Rico from both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. My constituents in the Lower East Side have family in Puerto Rico and they are concerned and worried. Many in the LES are leading initiatives to support recovery on the island. I am so grateful that our Mayor and Speaker are deploying resources to the island for the recovery efforts. I am urging all New Yorkers to donate to Puerto Rico whose recovery from the devastating efforts of Hurricane Maria is further complicated by the existing financial and health crisis.” – Councilwoman Rosie Mendez, District 2

cropped-cropped-rosie-pride-council-event3.jpg

“I applaud the efforts in working towards a more inclusive system for our LGBTQ Youth, one of the most vulnerable communities within our City. The NYC Unity Project is a multi-agency initiative that is needed to ensure that all residents are treated equally and can access any and all services provided by NYC while respecting the identity and rights of the LGBTQ community. The LGBT Caucus is actively working to pass legislation that would complement this initiative. Together, we can establish a model for other cities to replicate that will protect and serve every member of our society equally. New York City is prepared to provide the appropriate services and funding needed that will demonstrate that we respect everyone’s individuality.” – Councilwoman Rosie Mendez, Chair, LGBT Caucus
