A Few of The Events We Took Part in During Caucus
The guest speaker for this year's 46th Annual Scholarship Dinner Gala was Roland Martin
Our NYC Comptroller, Scott M. Stringer attended the 10th annual MWBE event
I attended a panel discussion on funding for our City (CUNY) and State (SUNY) public university systems.
Sen. Kevin Parker's Higher Education Panel Discussion - #SaveCUNY
As City University of New York (#CUNY) tuition fees continue to rise and the portion of State investment continues to decline, more money has to come out of students' pockets and they accumulate more debt.
This is a critical time to invest in higher #education for our communities. The state needs to provide the funds needed to prepare our students for the #jobs of the future.
It should be noted, these CUNY Colleges were once free. As more working-class whites and people of color started entering CUNY, State funding coincidentally went down. 🤔
