News And Events
Happy New Year! We are excited to share an overview of what you can expect to read about from Rise this year.
Rise will follow the new citywide policy requiring anyone who works in an NYC office or workplace to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Early in 2021, Rise was excited to welcome several new board members–Elliot Williams, Felicia Alleyne-Davis and Joan M. Williams. Later in the year, we also welcomed Kelly Castagnaro and Jeffrey Chang as board members.
In October, Rise and Brooklyn Defender Services submitted a letter calling on Governor Hochul to sign the Preserving Family Bonds Bill, S.6357/A.6700 into law. The Senate and Assembly have passed Preserving Family Bonds and now all that is needed is Governor Hochul’s signature to enact this significant legislation.
