Event Highlights:

"Without the dream of being able to pass something better on to the next generation, this is not New York."

 

- Annie Polland, Vice President of Education, Tenement Museum

"It's about educational equity, job supports, and housing access for individuals with disabilities -- they are our children, our neighbors, our city."

 

- Dava Schub, Chief Program Officer, The Jewish Community Center in Manhattan

"I plead with this administration to recognize how many splits there are in this town, and how few in public office know what life is like in a crowded classroom, or on the subway track at 4am, or to be the young untested teacher, or someone who must hold down two jobs to cover rent."

 

- Ruth Messinger, President, American Jewish World Service
