I am humbled to have been nominated to receive an award from @CityAndStateNY for my leadership of @NYCVetsAlliance. But City & State refused to include voices of women veterans in #HonoringVeterans program. I cannot accept this. My letter today: Last month, @CityAndStateNY asked if I could receive award. I was truly honored & said yes. That was followed up by an email asking @NYCVetsAlliance to partner on their veterans issue and #HonoringVeterans event. This was an even greater honor for us as a grassroots nonprofit.
