|Social Justice Post-Graduate Fellowship (SJPF)|
The New York City Social Justice Post-Graduate Fellowship (SJPF) is a full-time program for law school graduates to gain professional experience within municipal government. In its second year, the SJPF Program term will run from January to October of 2018.
Placement in New York City government offices lies at the heart of the SJPF Program. Fellows will be placed within mayoral and non-mayoral City agencies, offices, or the City Council in roles that complement their skill sets, interests, and expertise. The work is legal in nature. Fellows work on projects that foster equity for underserved and under-resourced communities, and engage in issue areas that impact communities that experience disparate outcomes in the five boroughs. In this capacity, Fellows have the opportunity to collaborate with senior-level policymakers, elected officials, and participate directly in the work of policymaking and governance.
While taking part in the work of government, NYC Social Justice Fellows are required to participate in educational and professional enrichment programming throughout the term that will help them serve as effective government leaders.

Dear Neighbors of the 35th District,
WHAT AN INCREDIBLE FY18 BUDGET YEAR!!! I wanted to share with each of you some of the incredible and exciting budget victories that I have been able to achieve on behalf of the 35th District. As your Council Member, representing one of the most diverse and dynamic Districts in the Borough of Brooklyn.
I have been able to fight for an unprecedented investment of your taxpayer dollars into our schools, community-based organizations, NYCHA developments, libraries, parks and so much more!
For the past several months, I have tirelessly pursued funding that would not only provide for the needs of today, but also secure the future. After many hours of strong negotiations, in an effort to bring critical resources and opportunities to District 35, I am proud of this new budget that will ensure that the needs of our growing community are met. It signifies our city’s deeper commitment towards strengthening our communities and protecting our most vulnerable populations – youth, seniors, and immigrants. These budgetary victories will sustain the vitality of our neighborhoods.
The budget is robust and responsible, taking into account the looming threat of Federal cuts while maintaining a rigorous adherence to the needs of all New Yorkers by expanding access to key programs and services.
I am proud to announce what I was able to accomplish in this budget for my district and citywide.
