Featuring representatives from the Bronx (Fordham) and Brooklyn (Bed-Stuy)!
Who runs the City Hall? Women! The NYC Council is majority-women for the first time in history, and many women of color, including the City Council Speaker, have been appointed to leadership positions and as chairs of committees that have tremendous implications on planning in the City. Join us this Thursday for a panel discussion that will include the newly elected Council Member Pierina Ana Sanchez from the Bronx, who’s the new Chairwoman of the City Council’s Housing & Buildings Committee; and May Vutrapongvatana, Council Member Chi Ossé’s Legislative & Budget Director. This event will be moderated by Sabina Sethi Unni and Matthew Shore for the UP Program Council. Thanks to Gabrielle Coleman for designing the event poster! Pizza and refreshments will be provided beforehand at 5 pm for students who attend the event in person!
This lecture will be presented virtually, with a viewing option in Fayerweather 209 for GSAPP Students.
Free and open to the public to attend virtually.
