Israel Miranda Jr.
Miranda and his members recently celebrated a victory when Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a law making the assault of a first responder a class D felony punishable by up to seven years in prison. With his many trips to Albany to lobby legislators in support of the new law, Miranda made a difference in galvanizing support for the law and securing its passage.
A strong advocate for the medical monitoring of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Miranda worked on the issue with former Sen. Hillary Clinton. He has been an active member of the WTC Medical Monitoring Committee since its inception and serves with the Public Employees Safety Committee and the NY Detox Workers Advisory Board.
