Hundreds Rally to Support Congresswoman Clarke's Re-election

Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke -- fittingly wearing a stylish bright red dress -- had a well-attended, inspiring and fun rally for her re-election campaign!  It was held on a sunny Sunday afternoon in front of the grand Brooklyn Museum.  The only G.L.B.T. organization to attend the public rally for Congresswoman Yvette was, as usual, the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans' Association.  Heading the group's contingency was its director Willson Henderson.  Public official speakers included U.S. Congressman Hakeem S. Jeffries, NYC Mayor W. Bill De Blasio, NYS Senator Kevin Parker, NYS Assemblywoman Latrice Walker and Councilmembers Laurie CumboRobert Cornegy and Aleika Ampry-Samuel.  Special guest was the person who made Yvette's life and career possible:  her mother, former NYC Councilmember Una S.T. Clarke!  Both Clarke ladies acknowledged the S.V.A.!
