Senator Cordell Cleare will be hosting a Senate Resolution Ceremony to pay tribute to the late Bill Perkins, a highly respected and long-serving elected official from Harlem. Perkins dedicated 25 years of his life to representing Harlem, first in the City Council from 1998 to 2005, then in the State Senate from 2007 to 2017, and finally returning to the Council from 2017 to 2021.
As a community activist, tenant leader, and elected official, Perkins played a pivotal role in advocating for justice, equality, and the empowerment of his constituents. He was instrumental in supporting initiatives such as the Exonerated Central Park Five and the Childhood Lead Pain Poisoning Prevention Act of 2004, which aimed to protect children from the harmful effects of lead in their homes.
Perkins’ passing leaves a significant void in the Harlem community, and this ceremony serves as an opportunity to celebrate his legacy and express gratitude for his tireless efforts.
“Bill Perkins, a true luminary of Harlem, dedicated his life’s work to championing justice, equality, and empowerment. His tireless efforts served as a guiding light for our community, igniting a spark of hope and inspiring transformative change. As we gather today to honor his profound legacy, let us carry forward his torch, continuing the vital work he started, and shaping a future that embodies the principles he fought so passionately for. Justice. Equality. Empowerment.”
