Rise meeting with Council Member Althea Stevens.
Rise began meeting with New York City Council Members to introduce our policy priorities. The Rise organizing team and parent constituents met with Council Members Althea Stevens, Chair of the Committee on Youth Services and Amanda Farías, Chair of Committee on Economic Development. We engaged in in-depth conversations about what it means to improve child care in NYC and parents shared their stories on the harms of mandated reporting. Both city council members committed to centering parent voices and collaborating around issues related to family wellbeing. Rise plans to continue to meet with City Council Members as we move forward in our campaign.
