CSA’s Political Action Committee Hosts Council Member Ben Kallos and AQE Executive Director Jasmine Gripper
Tuesday’s bi-monthly PAC meeting included remarks from City Council Member Ben Kallos (District 5) who recently announced his run for Manhattan Borough President. We were also joined by Jasmine Gripper, representing Alliance for Quality Education (AQE). As the newly appointed Executive Director of AQE, Jasmine shared her vision for the organization under new leadership and discussed how a lack of funding impacts our school communities, especially in districts that serve communities of color. In addition, announcements were shared about the impact of Early Voting, Ranked-Choice Voting, and Census 2020. Discussions pertaining to these topics will continue as we enter the New Year and gear up for a number of races that will alter the political landscape for years to come.
Lastly, for members who were unable to attend, please note the change of date for our next Bi-Monthly PAC Meeting. Congressional screenings will take place on Monday, January 16th as opposed to January 21st.
