2023 Héctor Figueroa Leadership Award

Héctor Figueroa, former President of SEIU 32BJ, was a seminal figure in the life of New York City, fighting for a healthy, sustainable future and good jobs for working people. He made an indelible impression on all who met him and also left an incredible legacy, one we memorialize with the Héctor Figueroa Leadership Award, presented annually at our Gala.
