VOLUNTEER FOR THE PB Poster Making Workshop!
We’re in the homestretch of preparing for the 7th annual Participatory Budgeting vote. During April 7–15, our community will choose which local projects get a piece of $1 million dollars in discretionary funding.
The posters visually communicate the value and importance of the projects to the institutions that would benefit from funding, and to our community. And we need your help in developing them.
If you’d like to volunteer, please see this flyer for more information.  Your efforts help to give real power to people eager to be involved in the political process, resulting in better budget decisions — because who knows the needs of our community better than the people who live here.Legal Hand Poster Workshop Final

3/21 deadline: Discovery Guide Volunteer Program

Based in our Education Department at the New York Aquarium, Discovery Guides are seasonal volunteers (14 – 21) who receive training in customer service and basic interpretation. Discovery Guides focus on a select group of visitor experiences and, in turn, gain experience with teaching, leadership, public speaking, and learn about animals and the wild places they inhabit!

Discovery Guides who successfully complete the program will be eligible for other volunteer opportunities at the New York Aquarium.

Participants must be 14 years old and have graduated from Middle School at time of submitting application to participate.

Volunteer opportunities for Summer 2018 are here!

Past-Present-Future Count Down to SOTD 2017

As my team and I reflect on the past 3.5 years that we have served District 35, we are overjoyed by the many victories that we have won to strengthen and revitalize our beloved community. Over the next three weeks, we will be counting down to my Third Annual State of the District, which will feature an overview of our successes during my first term as Council Member for Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, parts of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant. We are not done yet, this is only just a preview of the amazing work that we have accomplished collaboratively as one community and the vision for our future. I invite you to join me on Thursday, May 18th at 6PM along with your family, friends, and neighbors at the Ingersoll Community Center located at 177 Myrtle Avenue.
