Assemblywoman Crystal D. Peoples-Stokes is the new Association Chair and this year’s theme, “Reclaiming Our Sons & Our Daughters,” is a commitment to re-engage Legislators, businesses and constituencies statewide to reclaim our children. This annual, statewide event allows The Association to raise scholarship funds for the educational advancement of African-American, Hispanic and other minority youth.
The three-day weekend will bring together the most influential African-American, Hispanic, Caribbean and Asian leaders from every corner of the Empire State and beyond. The weekend includes the Friday night Chairman’s Reception which is by invitation-only. Saturday’s itinerary boasts a series of dynamic seminars, a Career and Business Expo and Craft Exhibition Fair, an exciting Youth Summit hosted by WBLK’s Adri-V, plus an R&B Concert featuring Grammy-award winner, Chrisette Michelle, Johnny Gill and Concert After-Party. On Sunday, The Association and conference attendees take part in a Church Service, Awards Ceremony and its most important event – the Gala Scholarship Dinner, which also serves as the weekend’s largest fundraiser for educational scholarships.
The New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, Inc. is comprised of 43 Black, Hispanic, and Asian state legislators from districts across the state. Although its composition is diverse, its goal is wholeheartedly singular; increasing its Scholarship Fund to offer scholarships to NYS high school students who are pursuing higher education.
