Public Advocate Letitia James, City Council Member Vanessa L. Gibson, and Congressman Adriano Espaillat all delivered captivating speeches. Public Advocate James applauded Healthfirst’s mission to serve disadvantaged communities and families: “The feminization of poverty is real. We need to raise our voices. Women’s and children’s issues need to be in the forefront.”

The awards segment of the event had many motivational moments. Honoree Renee Mehrra reiterated, “Tonight is all about women power. Thank you, Healthfirst, for putting together such a tangible contribution and giving back to the community.” The night closed with a touching speech by , who emphasized her passion for community empowerment, especially for women and youth. “We should embrace our uniqueness, and embrace the uniqueness of others,” stated Cabrera.
