PORT CHESTER, N.Y. – The first African-American speaker of the state Assembly, Carl Heastie, will be the keynote speaker at Port Chester/Rye Branch of the NAACP’s seventh annual Robert S. Brown/ M. Paul Redd Freedom Fund Luncheon on Saturday, Oct. 17, at noon at Copacabana Restaurant.

This year’s luncheon theme is “4 Keys to Success: Parents, Students, Community and Schools.” Heastie has stressed the need to help improve the lives of all New Yorkers and is committed to establishing a true living wage, ensuring women's equality, securing every child's access to a solid education and enacting affordable housing.

Representing the 83rd Assembly District in the Bronx, Heastie has been called one of the most active Assembly members by his colleagues. He quickly became one of the leading advocates for the construction of the new schools in New York City. In addition, he has secured funds for housing, education, after-school programming, health and human services, jobs readiness and computer training programs.
