“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Inez McCormack, the trailblazing human rights activist, signatory to the historic MacBride Principles on Fair Employment and the first woman President of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. Inez was an unrelenting advocate for working people all over the world, including domestic workers right here in New York City. Her work to bring peace in the North of Ireland and equality to disadvantaged groups everywhere made her an influential voice in the United States and abroad. Her life’s efforts highlighted our common humanity and brought dignity to the most vulnerable citizens. On behalf of the New York City Council, I want to extend my sincerest condolences to her family, she was an inspiration to us all.”
