As a Buffalo native April N. McCants-Baskin is a devoted community advocate for equity and social justice. In 2017 April was elected to represent District 2 of the Erie County Legislature. District 2 is the most diverse district in Erie County, as it contains the region’s wealthiest and poorest neighborhoods, as well as being home to immigrants and refugees from dozens of nations from around the world. Immediately upon taking office Baskin was selected to serve as the Majority Leader.

A year later, her colleagues elected her Chairperson of the Legislature in the spring of 2019, making her the youngest person and the first freshman to serve as Chairperson in the history of the Erie County Legislature. Join in on the conversation with Kyria and Hon. April N. M Baskin.
