Each year during March, Women's History Month, State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright hosts a celebration in which she honors Women of Distinction within her district. For 2019, five Roosevelt Islanders are among the honorees.

This year's Women's History Month Celebration takes place in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Auditorium on March 7th, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Among 18 Women of Distinction are five Roosevelt Islanders:

  • Rossana Ceruzzi is an animal rights activist whose work on Roosevelt Island stretches back more than a decade. She's the founder of Wildlife Freedom Foundation and last year made her mark successfully resisting RIOC's inexplicable effort to evict the Southpoint Cat Sanctuary by turning off its water at the start of summer.
  • Jennilie Brewster is the founder and project lead for OPEN DOORS at Coler Hospital. OPEN DOORS encourages creative activities for physically challenged individuals. Most visibly here, Brewster has enabled an emerging group of poets who've staged live readings at Gallery RIVAA.
  • J. Khadijiah Abdurahman is a freelance writer and leader of Creator of WordToRI, according to the announcement.
  • Julia Ferguson, Language Teacher at the UN International School

  • Jovemay Santos, Director of Therapeutic Recreation Services at Coler Hospital
