As we approach the 2023 General Election in NYC, many voters remain unsure of what they are actually voting for. This sentiment extends from policy/partisan positions of candidates to the actual roles/responsibilities of the offices on the ballot. Community members should attend this workshop to learn more about what they are voting for and by extension what their expectations of winning candidates should be after election day. This conversation will include a comprehensive breakdown of the roles & responsibilities of NYC City Council Members, District Attorneys, and Civil Court Judges in addition to tools & resources for learning more about the candidates running for these offices. We will also discuss the impact that voter turnout & engagement has, especially within NYC communities of African descent along with the various ways in which voters can cast their ballot in the upcoming election.
