Generally speaking local elections see the lowest turnout of all the other elections and it is because of this that the Long Island Civic Engagement Table [created by Make the Road NY] is organizing a voter drive this Saturday in order to encourage people to vote for Tuesday's elections. Daniel Altschuler is one of the people who will be out there encouraging people from Suffolk county to vote from the regions which generally speaking do not have high voter turnout.
Since the November NYC elections, MRNY members have been hard at work setting the agenda for our next mayor, City Council and citywide elected officials.
We kicked off "Talking Transition" with a low-wage worker forum and our attorneys have been staffing a Single Stop clinic around the clock at the Transition tent.
Recently, our youth joined the Transitions conversation to bring education and police reform issues into the spotlight for the new elected officials. 17-year-old youth leader Cheyanne Smith was also profiled in the New York Times for her leadership to make NYC schools more respectful, safe, and dignified places for learning.
