Daneek Miller to co-chair BLAC Caucus

Southeast Queens’s own council will lead the City Council’s Black, Latino and Asian Caucus (BLAC) this legislative session.

Daneek Miller, alongside Manhattan’s Ydanis Rodriguez, were elected as co-chairs of the group. Newly-elected councilwoman Adrienne Adams will serve as vice co-chair alongside Corona’s Francisco Moya.

Alicka Ampry-Samuel from Brownsville will serve as secretary, and Flushing’s Peter Koo will be treasurer.

The executive committee will serve for a minimum of two years. They’re in charge of steering the legislative and policy agenda for the 26-member caucus.

“We pride ourselves as being the largest and most influential bloc within the City Council as evidenced by our role in refining the administration’s timeline for withdrawing challenges to civil suits related to stop, question and frisk,” Miller said. “We aim to be aggressive as we work to advance our agenda in the days ahead, mindful of the fact our strength is rooted in our shared interests as New Yorkers of color.”
