A Huntington pediatrician will be honored Dec. 8 at the state NOW conference.
Dr. Eve Krief, founder of Long Island Inclusive Communities Against Hate, aimed at fostering mutual respect and understanding in diverse communities, will receive a Susan B. Anthony award at the conference.
She is on the executive committee of the Long Island-Brooklyn/Queens chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics where she serves as Legislative Advocacy chair. She has been an outspoken activist in recent years, writing multiple op-eds and organizing rallies to save the ACA from repeal, oppose abortion bans and most notably to oppose family separation and the inhumane treatment of immigrants at the southern border and in detention facilities across the country. She is on the national core team of immigrant Justice Now.
Krief was recognized as the “Woman of Distinction” for Suffolk County’s 18th Legislative District in 2018. She received the American Academy of Pediatrics Outstanding Achievement Award 2019 and a NYS Senate Commendation Award in 2019.
The conference, entitled Women in the Lead, Building a Progressive Feminist Movement, is scheduled for 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., at the North Country Reform Temple, 86 Crescent Beach Road, Glen Cove.
