John Cappello, Esq. of J&G, LLP was honored by the Orange County Human Rights Commission at its 20th annual award dinner on May 28th 2015 at The Fountains of Wallkill in Goshen.
The Commission has a mission to serve Orange County residents by fostering mutual respect and understanding among all racial, religious and nationality groups in the county. For the past twenty years, the Commission has recognized individuals, businesses, and agencies who work to advance human rights in Orange County.
John was one of five community-minded individuals chosen for this prestigious award because of his efforts in helping to build better relationships among diverse people and encouraging their participation in community life on an equal basis. John is president of Orange County Regional Economic Community Action Program (RECAP) and serves on many other boards and committees. John has presented numerous programs in the Hudson Valley on zoning and land use issues focusing on providing workforce housing.
“This was a very special honor,” said Mr. Cappello. “However, the honor should really go to all the hard working dedicated staff at RECAP and all the other wonderful organizations in the Hudson Valley seeking to provide a hand up to those in need.”
