Rev. Al Sharpton hosted several city and state elected officials Saturday for the annual Christmas Dinner and Toy Distribution at the House of Justice in Harlem immediately after the weekly rally. This was the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic that NAN will host in-person dining for Christmas.
Thanksgiving marked the first time since 2019 that dining was held within the House of Justice, as NAN distributed packaged to-go meals in 2020 and 2021 at the site.
Electeds came through, including Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, DA Alvin Bragg, Cong. Adriano Espaillat and Councilmember Rita Joseph. Exonerated Five members Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam, Eric Garner’s mom Gwen Carr and others also enjoyed the great community day..
