Last night over 200 people packed Simyone Lounge to honor 5 amazing young people at MYD’s 3rd Annual ‘Young Gets It Done’ Awards. We were joined by veritable who’s who of New York City politics, including Scott Stringer, Bill Thompson, John Liu and many other fantastic guests!
Our honorees were introduced by members of the Open Seat Project, part of MYD’s commitment to get young people elected to office here in Manhattan. This year over 90 young people collected signatures to get on the ballot!
We rallied the troops, we danced, we met incredible people, and most importantly, we showed that young Progressives are excited about the challenges that face us and ready to lead. Each of our 5 honorees, as well as everyone in attendance, proved that when young people decide to change the world, anything is possible. We are so proud of all of our honorees: Marvin Bing, Natasha Dillon, Ava Farkas, Lincoln Restler and Jose Luis Zacatelco.
