I recently completed a portrait of @repyvetteclarke and I had the honor of presenting her a print* of it at her Congressional re-election launch on Sunday.
It was such an incredible moment for me, and I was so thrilled to be there. I think it’s beyond important to support her re-election. She has several primary challengers despite her solid progressive record and excellent constituent service. Some of her roles in Congress: Vice-Chair of Energy and Commerce Committee for small businesses, Homeland Security and Vice Chair of the CBC.
She serves in Shirley Chisholm’s former district and is only the second African-American Congresswoman from New York and the ONLY African-American Congresswoman currently serving in New York.
