NYC Public Advocate's Statement On The 50th Anniversary Of Grenada's Independence

February 7th, 2024

Press Release

"As the proud son of Grenadian immigrants, I want to wish a Happy 50th Independence Anniversary to all who share heritage from Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique. I am forever proud of and shaped by my roots and the time I’ve spent on the Isle of Spice, and proud to join in the Golden Jubilee celebrations.

"In my work in New York City, home to tens of thousands of Grenadians, I celebrate and uplift the ways in which Grenadian culture has shaped our communities, and strive to honor the proud history of the island in my work for justice, equity, and liberty. We celebrate those values today, as we have throughout five decades of independence, and look to the promising future."

Following a Special Joint Sitting of Parliament in Grenada yesterday, the Public Advocate met with local dignitaries and presented the Prime Minister, the Hon. Dickon Mitchell, with a proclamation. Photos are available here.
