Closing Plenary: What's New New York?
Feedback form is now closed.

Over the last two years, organizing has won dramatic changes in New York, with many still unfolding. From winning 2.1 BILLION$ for workers who'd been excluded from COVID relief, to finally getting our schools the money they're owed, to all the new faces we see up in the State House.

What do these changes mean for organizers? What does it mean for our labor movement? What is changing in NY politics, what is likely to stay the same? And what should activists in other states be on the lookout for?
