Day Two of the Tour: Activism in NYC!

Today we had the chance to meet with some of New York’s important public servants and activists! We met with Jarret Hova, Director of Policy and Council in the office of the Public Advocate for the City of New York, Letitia James, Nisha Agarwal, Senior Advisor to Deputy Mayor Thompson, and Eva Moskowitz, founder and CEO of Success Academy.

Students participated in engaging question and answer sessions, had the chance to explore some of New York’s public offices, and took a boat tour to the Statue of Liberty. We finished the day by attending a reception thanking our SEA and Citizenship Tour supporters– we even had the chance to see Ramy Ashour and Todd Harrity hit some great points!
