Every March, Assemblymember William Colton (D 47th) celebrates neighborhood women who make Brooklyn a better place.
“Many women of the Brooklyn community are paving the way for a better future, overcoming barriers and changing things up for a stronger community,” Colton says. “The Women of Distinction Awards is our way of thanking these phenomenal women.”
Awards categories include business, education, health care, humanitarian, military services and volunteer work, and other achievements.
