This month, I was honored to attend the 58th Session of the Commission for Social Development at the United Nations in New York where international leaders addressed poverty, equality, housing and homelessness.
During the session, Rhode Island's very own Bernard Georges of New Bridges for Haitian Success was recognized by the Council for Justice, Equality and Peace and the Federation of World Peace and Love for his support of the Haitian community in our state and abroad. In 2018, Bernard and I worked with the Town of Lincoln to donate an emergency vehicle to a Haitian community in need. I enjoyed discussing that effort with ambassadors, advocates and elected officials from around the world.
