Star of Brooklyn: Vicki McFadyen
President of Peace Action Bay Ridge Interfaith
COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: A member of the Bay Ridge community since 1983, Vicki McFadyen, along with her peace coalition, Peace Action Bay Ridge Interfaith, has given a voice to so many people throughout the community looking to move forward with different peace initiatives.
McFadyen said the group initially grew out of opposition to the war in Iraq.
“We wanted to express our disagreement with the decision to go to war with Iraq,” McFadyen said, “so we demonstrated in front of congressional offices.”
