For those of you who missed yesterday's presentation at WESPAC, I highly recommend taking the time to watch this 40 minute clip. It is truly outstanding. Jafar and Suha give us so much hope and inspiration for the future of Israel/Palestine. They are eloquent, passionate, deeply committed and model precisely how and why the Palestinian citizens of Israel are gamechangers for the region. They will return to WESPAC next year with a bigger delegation including Jewish citizens of Israel as well as potentially Members of the Knesset. We were so delighted to host them:youtu.be/T3fTKnC5xIM ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you @Sen_Gounardes for co-sponsoring the NY Public Banking Act!

Local public banks ensure that our public deposits are being used to benefit our communities, not Wall St CEOs.

Thank you @SandyGalef for your support of the NY Public Banking act!

Local public banks can help communities, like those in Westchester, leverage the public's deposits to meet critical community needs.

I highly recommend taking the time to watch this 40 minute clip. Jafar and Suha give us so much hope for the future of Israel/Palestine. Eloquent, passionate, deeply committed and model how Palestinian citizens of Israel are gamechangers for the region:
