As Regional Director for the Mid-Hudson and Westchester Region NAACP, Wilbur Aldridge has worked tirelessly to eliminate discrimination in all forms. He developed a successful re-entry program for the prior convicted and strives for fair and affordable housing for all.

A humanitarian and retired Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Martha MacGuffie founded SHARE, a group whose mission is to improve the living conditions in other parts of the world such as Kenya where she frequently visits to assist children.

John Murphy has worked to protect the civil/human rights of all people, especially the disabled and disadvantaged with groups including Camp Venture, Loeb House, Joseph’s Home and St. Dominic’s Home for Children. Murphy is also a longtime Rockland County Legislator.

‘€œCongratulations to this year’s honorees for dedicating themselves to working towards a better Rockland,’€ said Commissioner of Human Rights S. Ram Nagubandi. ‘€œResidents are proud to be part of a community that promotes equality regardless of race, creed, color or national origin.’€
