The next Speaker of the New York City Council has an essential role to play, particularly in this political moment, in ensuring that New York City women and non-binary New Yorkers—particularly those of color—thrive. As Speaker Mark-Viverito’s tenure draws to a close, we invite you to join us to learn more about how Speaker candidates will continue moving a policy agenda forward that lifts up our communities while building on the legacy of leadership before them.
