Post-Election Community Conversation

image001.jpg image002.jpg

We understand that many local residents are still reeling from the results of this week’s Presidential election. Many in our community are hurt, concerned, and looking for information on what this means for the next four years.

In light of this, Council Member Mark Levine is hosting a Community Conversation on Tuesday, November 15th at 6:30 pm at Our Children's Foundation located on 527 West 125th Street between Amsterdam Ave and Broadway.

We ask community members to join us for a discussion on your concerns and questions about what this means for you, your family and your neighbors. We will also have presentations from experts on immigration, constitution law, and policy to help clarify any questions and concerns you might have. Finally, we will discuss how we move forward together as a community.
