As part of his drive to reopen Brooklyn Borough Hall to public events, Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso on Thursday hosted a comedy show in celebration of Women’s History Month at the historic structure in Downtown Brooklyn.

The “Laughs @ Brooklyn Borough Hall: Laughter is Medicine” lineup included Dee Luu, Chanel Ali, and Meaghan Strickland, all members of the Brooklyn Comedy Collective, an alternative comedy organization.

“This month, I’ve celebrated not only the nurturing women in my family, but also the trailblazing female politicians and community organizers that have carried me on their backs and supported me through my career. I’m also incredibly proud to say that Brooklyn Borough Hall’s current staff is over 50 percent women,” said Borough President Reynoso.

“It was a pleasure celebrating my first Women’s History Month in this new role by sharing the time with the real people who make up the best place in the world – Brooklyn,” he added.

During the event, the Brooklyn borough president also awarded citations to the Executive Director of Diaspora Community Services Carine Jocelyn, and Executive Director of Mixteca Organization, Inc. Lorena Kourousias for their contributions throughout the borough of Brooklyn. Diaspora Community Services is a social service organization in Central Brooklyn providing support to low-income people, immigrants and the chronically ill; and Mixteca Organization is a community organization in Sunset Park geared toward meeting the needs of the Mexican and Latin American immigrant communities.

The Women’s History Month celebration at Borough Hall is one of many planned free events intended for the public. While Brooklyn Borough Hall has been closed for the last couple of years, Reynoso is committed to re-opening Borough Hall back to the people of Brooklyn with ongoing public programming.
