Rep. Ocasio-Cortez speaks at NAACP's Women's History Month event
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the keynote speaker at a special Women's History Month event Sunday in Parkchester.
The event at St. Paul's Lutheran Church on McGraw Avenue was organized by the Parkchester branch of the NAACP. This year, it celebrated the achievements of women in today's political climate.
Ocasio-Cortez spoke about racial injustice and the strides that women -- and women of color -- are making today.
The event aimed to highlight the experience of women in politics -- from Sojourner Truth and women in the suffrage movement all the way to Ocasio-Cortez.
Attendees also had the chance to ask the congresswoman questions.
