“There is nothing more fitting than the greatest city in the world celebrating the greatest team in the world. These athletes made it look so easy at the World Cup but we know they worked tirelessly for years to get to the Canyon of Heroes today. They are inspiring role models for young people everywhere both on and off the soccer field and they have reminded all of us what this country of ours is really about. The New York City Council is incredibly proud of the US Women’s Soccer team and supports them wholeheartedly, including in their fight for equal pay. The world is watching how we treat them.”
