NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced that both City Hall and the David N. Dinkins Manhattan Municipal Building will be lit teal tonight as part of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s ‘Light the World in Teal’ initiative.
“This month we raise awareness for the more than 6 million Americans affected by Alzheimer’s disease and show our support to the families and friends who care for their loved ones,” said Mayor Adams. “The growing rates of this devastating disease have disproportionately affected Black Americans, who are twice as likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s yet are excluded from the majority of medical studies. As we continue to work to find a cure, tonight we not only reflect on the millions of people affected by this devastating disease, but recommit ourselves to doing all we can to support them and their families.”
