Melissa Gets an A+ on 2010 Human Rights Report Card

Melissa has received the highest grade in a new report card published by the  Urban Justice Center that looks at City Council Members’ voting and sponsorship records on key pieces of legislation that advance human rights in our city in the areas of housing, health, workers’ rights, criminal justice and government accountability.  She will be presented with the 2010 New York City Human Rights Award, along with fellow honoree Council Member Jumaane Williams, who also received an A+ on the report card.

The report card looks at 43 pieces of legislation and votes on land use, as well as a questionnaire, to tabulate each member’s score.  Melissa is the lead sponsor on three of the bills used to measure Council Members’ commitment to human rights.
