New York State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright to be honored as Humanitarian of the Year by Roosevelt Island-based James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation and Orphans International Worldwide at their 19th Annual Awards Gala on February 28th.

Earlier this year, Assembly Member Seawright welcomed the J Luce Foundation's current crop of Young Global Leaders for a tour of the Albany legislative chambers.

"She's a longtime advocate for women’s rights and a proponent of the long-awaited Equal Rights Amendment," Luce said of her at the time. "She's a brave and determined fighter against discrimination and intolerance at all levels of our society."

Seawright now tops the list of six Humanitarian Award recipients.

Other categories for awards at the gala include Leadership and Fellowship along with artists-in-residence recognition.
