“USGLC is proud to honor Mayor Brown because he has been an influential advocate for strengthening American global leadership to support our communities here at home,” Liz Schrayer, president and CEO of the coalition, said in the release. “Let’s face it, mayors across the country are on the frontlines every day, addressing global issues that are now kitchen table issues – from the pandemic to our economy – that matter to their constituents. They uniquely understand that America simply can’t ignore what happens outside our borders.
“Mayors across America are stepping up, knowing that diplomacy and development are essential to the health, safety, and economic interests of every American family. It’s exciting to recognize them,” she added.
The coalition’s co-chair, former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will be on hand for the tribute event.
