We are excited to share that Mayor Adams has withdrawn his consideration of appointing former City Council member Fernando Cabrera to the Office of Community Mental Health.
Within just 12 hours we received hundreds of signatures and dozens of social media posts urging Mayor Adams against appointing Cabrera. Thank you to everyone who took the time to advocate and spread the word. It is because of you that we have this victory.
New York City and New York State has no place for hate.
Equality New York and our partner organizations will be working together to help identify qualified LGBTQI individuals and allies to help recruit the right people for these types of positions. We will be sharing more information shortly.
