In many ways, this coronavirus pandemic has exposed the inequalities of our city, especially when it comes to our education system and access to resources. Yet as we continue to adjust to our new school “normal,” I am reminded often that our young people are resilient and our city is strong. Thanks to the work of our first responders, doctors, nurses, hospital staff and essential workers, we will get through this. As we all become problem solvers in this crisis, I know that by working together, we will get through this uncertainty.
As a parent, educator, union member, community leader and candidate for city council, I am eager to continue fighting for the programs our students need to thrive.
The northwest Bronx community and its leaders are pushing back against proposed express bus service cuts with a new petition.
