Congratulations to Carolyn McCarthy, recipient of NYAGV’s Allard K. Lowenstein Award for Public Service.

Congresswoman McCarthy was honored at the recent NYAGV Education Fund Annual Benefit for her outspoken advocacy for strong, sensible gun laws throughout her 18 years in Congress. We need more representatives like Congresswoman McCarthy!
