Thursday, November 30, State Rep. Cherrish Pryor (D - Indianapolis) was awarded Legislator of the Year by the National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL). Pryor was one of seven legislators nationwide to receive this award at the 47th annual NBCSL annual conference in Tennessee this week. Legislators are granted this recognition for demonstrating extraordinary leadership and a commitment to the advancement of NBCSL’s legislative agenda. 

“I am honored to be named a ‘Legislator of the Year’ alongside some of the top leaders of our time. Throughout my years of public service, I have remained steadfast in my determination to improve the quality of life for all Hoosiers. I will continue to fight for what matters to the people. 

“This year, I co-sponsored Senate Enrolled Act 46 that allows for the creation of Neighborhood Enhancement Districts (NED) which provide a circuit breaker tax credit on Homesteads for Hoosier families. Establishing NEDs is a critical step in the fight against gentrification as dramatic increases in assessed home values may force families out of their long-term home. Providing tax relief to low-income communities allows Hoosiers of all races to stay in their homes, but particularly Black Hoosiers as they are disproportionately impacted by this issue. 

“While I am proud of this recognition, I prepare to head into the legislative session in January with an even stronger resolve to fight for the wellbeing, representation and social advancement of Black Hoosiers.”
