New York's Heroes
The four Democrats below delivered the most impassioned and stirring pro-equality speeches of the day. If you didn't get to watch the proceedings live, please watch as each Senator approaches the issue from a different direction. Sen. Eric Adams, with gripping historical comparisons. Sen. Diane Savino, with great humor and pop culture references. Sen. Ruth Hassell-Thompson, with a heartbreaking personal story. And Sen. Eric Schneiderman, with a challenge to bring New York into the modern age. All heroes. Every one.
