Brewer weighs in on scuttled Amazon deal

Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer always had strong opinions on the city’s ill-fated plan to bring Amazon’s new headquarters to New York City.

When the deal was first announced last November, Brewer criticized the city for skirting the Universal Land Use Review Process (ULURP) and including billions in tax breaks for the company, which is valued at around a trillion dollars.

However, she agreed to join an advisory committee convened by the city and state to examine community concerns around the Amazon deal and oversee discussion on workforce development.

Brewer said she was “totally shocked” when Amazon revealed last Thursday it decided to back out of the deal, especially since staffers from her office had met that same morning with Amazon executives and advisors to Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio. “We had no idea,” she said. “Mr. Cox, who is the head of Amazon here in New York, he didn’t know. I talked to him later on in the day, and he didn’t know they were pulling the plug until after the meeting. Nor did my staff, nor did the mayor’s staff. So, that’s how it was done in Seattle.” After Amazon scrapped the plan, de Blasio chastised the tech giant for backing away while Cuomo reserved his ire for Democratic elected officials such as State Senator Michael Giannaris, who sought to kill the project.

Brewer said there wasn’t one party to blame, but pointed out that Amazon needed to do more than court acceptance from elected officials.

Trauma-informed yoga classes offered uptown

At first they were skeptical.

Lauraliz Morales-Silva, Community Manager at Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation (NMIC), invited women who regularly attend scheduled events to take the free yoga classes.
Not everyone was excited about it. Some women were unfamiliar with it. Others weren’t even sure if they had the right clothes.

But after an hour, the women came out elated. “They were so surprised,” said Morales-Silva. “They were like, ‘Oh my God! I’m so relaxed.’” Next week, even more people stayed.

For 40 years, NMIC, a Washington Heights-based nonprofit, has offered a variety of community services. People can take advantage of free legal and tax help, educational and career opportunities, community organizing events and group counseling. NMIC handles intervention but focuses on long-term strategies. The new yoga program is just one aspect of developing individual and community empowerment. “It’s really a whole host of things to help people gain a newer understanding of themselves and more independence, and feel safer over the long term,” said Sarah Crawford Banda, NMIC’s Domestic Violence Project Director.

NYS joins suit against Trump’s national emergency

New York State Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California challenging President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency in a bid to build a wall at the Mexican border, and his attempt to divert funding appropriated by Congress for other purposes.

The complaint alleges that Trump’s emergency declaration and diversion of funds is unconstitutional and otherwise unlawful.

Joining in filing the lawsuit are the Attorneys General of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Virginia.

The states seek to block the Trump administration’s emergency declaration, unauthorized construction of the border wall and any illegal diversion of Congressionally-appropriated funds.

The suit points out that unlawful southern border entries are at their lowest point in twenty-years, immigrants are less likely than native-born citizens to commit crimes and illegal drugs are more likely to come through official ports of entry.

Advocates raise concerns on new IDNYC technology

Not so smart a start.

Advocates are expressing reservations about the city’s plan to add a smart chip to the IDNYC card in an effort to enable payment and banking capabilities.

At a City Council oversight hearing on Mon., Feb.11th, Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) Commissioner Bitta Mostofi testified that the de Blasio administration was currently seeking proposals from financial services providers who could implant smart chip technology in the IDNYC card. The smart chip could allow users to access banking transactions or even make contactless Metrocards payment for subway and bus fares.

However, advocates issued sharp rebukes during the hearing and warned that the technology could pose privacy issues, and could risk divulging identity information for vulnerable New Yorkers to the federal government. “We are deeply concerned that the potential integrations to the IDNYC will put immigrants at even greater risk of ICE surveillance, as the data collected through multiple points associated with the ID can become a very useful tool for creating profiles about people or groups or people,” said Mizue Aizeki, Deputy Director of the Immigrant Defense Project (IDP).

Faculty Fight

These profs are primed for battle.

Union members employed by City University of New York (CUNY) are headed back to Albany, demanding fair pay for faculty and staff. “Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers depend on CUNY,” said Barbara Bowen, President of the Professional Staff Congress/CUNY (PSC). “We were willing to risk arrest to demonstrate the urgency of increasing CUNY funding. CUNY cannot give students the support they need to thrive if there is inadequate funding for college libraries and no funding to hire new full-time professors or pay adjunct faculty a just wage.” Seventeen union members, including Bowen, blocked the entrance to Baruch College last December, demanding CUNY’s board of trustees take a public stand for a budget that adequately funds educational programs and salary increases. They were promptly arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

The union protesters had their charges tossed out by a Manhattan Criminal Court judge Monday, Feb. 11.

Op-Led: Spread Love It’s The Mirabal Sisters Way

By @led_black
. . .
"It is a source of happiness to do whatever can be done for our country that suffers so many anguishes. It is sad to stay with one's arms crossed." Minerva Mirabal

Rafael Leónidas Trujillo Molina could not have known that he sealed his own fate when he ordered the brutal murder of the Mirabal sisters. Trujillo had harassed, intimidated and even imprisoned members of the Mirabal family for years after Minerva Mirabal has rebuffed the dictator’s sexual advances at a party. On the night of November 25, 1960, Trujillo’s henchmen savagely beat 3 of the 4 sisters to death and then staged an accident to cover their tracks. Trujillo would be dead within 6 months.

The Mirabal Sisters could have easily put their safety over the fate of their countrymen. They chose the opposite. Even when their father premately died from the inherent stress of confronting a dictator they did not falter. When their husbands were imprisoned and tortured they did not give up their righteous struggle against a tyrant. It was the glorious example they set and their martyrdom that directly led to the downfall of one of the worst despots the world has ever seen. A darling of the United States, Trujillo led a barbarous authoritarian regime that ruled through sheer terror and systematically massacred thousands of innocent people. He ruled Quisqueya with an iron fist for over 3 decades but could not suppress the national revulsion engendered by the sadistic murder of las hermanas Mirabal.

The Mirabal Sisters have unequivocally proven that you can kill the resisters but you cannot kill the resistance. It is that valiant spirit that illuminates the path forward today. Tyrants are not to be tolerated and must be vanquished at all costs. Que Viva Las Hermanas Mirabal!

City issues RFP for waterfront parks

The city is wading into the early stages of Inwood’s rezoning with a $200 million Request for Proposal (RFP) for the design of two new waterfront parks.

The two parks, along Academy Street and the North Cove, will provide public waterfront access, according to the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), which issued the RFP in conjunction with NYC Parks.

Inwood’s rezoning has not been without controversy. Residents protested the NYCEDC’s plan, which they said did not fully examine the implications of rezoning, and offered up their own plan. The rezoning was ultimately voted down by Community Board 12 and the Manhattan Borough President’s Office.

Nonetheless, taking the lead from Councilmember Ydanis Rodríguez, who favored the plan, the City Council voted in favor of the rezoning. Inwood residents subsequently filed a lawsuit alleging the city did not perform its due diligence with respect to the economic and environmental impacts of its plan.

No One Can Whistle a Symphony

By Kathleen M. Pike
It takes a whole orchestra to play it. These words from Yale Divinity School Professor H.E. Luccock capture an essential truth about advancing mental health globally.

In this spirit, we are proud to announce that the Global Mental Health Programs at Columbia University is launching the Council for the Advancement of Global Mental Health Research. With 78 inaugural members in just two months, we are well on our way to passing our goal of 100 members by the end of the year.

The Council will support new investigators and new ideas so that we can advance research to improve mental health understanding and interventions. We will celebrate the coming together of people with different perspectives, lived experiences, and skill sets who are united in changing the narrative on mental health worldwide. Moving the needle on mental health includes us all.

“Normal and Essential”

By Elizabeth Estrada

As a Latina who has had two abortions, I know firsthand how important it is to openly support people who’ve had and will have abortions.

I applaud Governor Cuomo for signing the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) into law to ensure that abortion is treated as a normal and essential part of health care, instead of a criminal act.

RHA guarantees that people aren’t jailed for making decisions about their lives, bodies, and futures. This bill is a huge win for all New Yorkers who share the common value of reproductive health care as a human right.

This victory is possible because of people like Erika Christensen and her family, who courageously shared their own abortion stories in order to catalyze the New York legislature to pass RHA.

I want to celebrate them, abortion advocates, providers, and legislators across the country pushing for proactive legislation that would make abortion care more accessible and more compassionate for people who need it.

From the Heart, For the Heart

Make home cooking extra special this month by cooking from the heart for the heart.

Heart disease is the number one killer for all Americans and stroke is the fifth leading cause of death. Hispanics however, face even higher risks of cardiovascular disease as well as high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes.

The good news: education and a few simple lifestyle changes can help reduce the risk factors for these diseases; one of those changes can be as simple as eating more fresh avocados.

Eating vegetables and fruits, like healthy fresh avocados, is associated with a reduced risk of many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease.

The Soaring Sisters

The butterflies now soar at the corner of 168th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.

As Councilmember Ydanis Rodríguez unveiled a new street sign honoring the Mirabal sisters on Sun., Feb. 10, he hailed them as heroes who fought for freedom. “They were killed for fighting for social justice,” Rodríguez said. “They will never die, not only for Dominicans, but for those who love social justice.” The Councilmember said that when he visits his home country of the Dominican Republic, it is not uncommon for streets there to be co-named after historical figures such as Winston Churchill or John F. Kennedy. “As a city built by and for immigrants, it is an important contribution to leave names of individuals that will always live for all of us,” he said.

Rodríguez said though many buildings and institutions are named after people who donate large sums of money, this distinction was a fitting tribute to civil rights leaders or revolutionaries.

Chosen as Chancellor

He’s home.

The first Latinx to ever hold the post, Felix V. Matos Rodríguez, was appointed as City University of New York’s (CUNY) eighth Chancellor on Wednesday, Feb. 13th.

CUNY’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously to appoint the current President of Queens College to the post. Matos Rodríguez, 56, will assume his new role on May 1. “This appointment is particularly special because CUNY is home,” said Matos Rodríguez in a statement. “The appointment of Felix Matos Rodríguez as Chancellor marks the onset of a historic chapter in the narrative of this vital institution, one in which every member of the CUNY community should rejoice,” said William C. Thompson Jr., Chair of the CUNY Board of Trustees.

Thompson, who led the year-long search, said Matos Rodríguez has deep roots in CUNY.
Before becoming President of Queens College in 2014, he also held the top spot at Eugenio Maria de Hostos Community College for five years.

He now heads one of the nation’s largest educational systems, where more than 75 percent of the students are Latinx, black or Asian.

Census Check: New questions emerge on privacy protections

Critics of the U.S. Commerce Department said the decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census violates an E-Government Act that requires a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA). Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) said that while the Census Bureau does take several measures to protect privacy, the addition of a citizenship question seems to have happened outside of normal means. “It seems to be a very aggressive effort by the agency to put a question on the census that is not fully vetted,” said John Davisson, a lawyer at EPIC who specializes in litigation and Freedom of Information Act cases.

For the past 20 years, EPIC has been a government watchdog. A Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, it closely follows consumer privacy, civil liberties and technology issues. EPIC filed an injunction in November, alleging the Commerce Department is required to perform a privacy assessment before it undertakes a new collection of personal data.

When Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced a citizenship question would be added to the census because purportedly the Department of Justice (DOJ) requested the information to enforce the Voting Rights Act, it immediately raised concerns. When further investigation found that the DOJ was not the genesis for adding the question, reasons for adding it became even more suspect. “The justification put forward by the Census Bureau is not the real reason for it,” said Davisson.

“Sobering news”

Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City faces three major uncertainties.

Speaking in front of Albany legislators on Monday, February 11, the Mayor said that due to the new tax laws, the city is projected to receive $1 billion less in revenue than last year. The city also faces about $600 million in state budget cuts.

Another possible government shutdown could incur about $500 million in losses per month. “Last week, I presented my preliminary budget for the City of New York and I was compelled to deliver sobering news,” he said.

The Mayor told city agencies to find a total of $750 million in savings.

This is the first time his administration has ever invoked a PEG—a program to eliminate the gap. Every city agency will be given a dollar figure to cut and there will be a further extension of the city’s partial hiring freeze.

Open letter to workers

By Melissa Mark-Viverito

The strength of our city rests on the shoulders of our workers.

You are our economic backbone— the engine that keeps our communities vibrant and families strong. It has long been clear to me that all workers have the right to a just salary and sustainable employment, and that we need to fight to make that happen, especially for vulnerable immigrants workers.

I joined the struggle for workers’ rights soon after graduating college as a strategic organizer for SEIU Local 1199. The experience of being on the ground with community members and learning from them shaped my approach to the responsibilities as an elected official, first as a member and then as Speaker of the City Council.

What libraries will mean to the 2020 Census

Northern Manhattan had one of the city’s highest response rates for the 2010 Census.

Next year’s Census, however, will be run differently. Instead of filling out a paper form and dropping it in a mailbox, the Census will be conducted online.

The upgraded technology moves the Census into the Internet Age, but an online survey process raises new concerns. “The capture of data is instant,” said Joseph Salvo, New York City’s top demographer and head of the Population Division at the Department of City Planning (DCP). “There is an advantage to going via the internet, and, of course there are disadvantages too because not everyone has equal access to the internet.” According to Salvo, about 20 percent of all U.S. households will receive the traditionally mailed questionnaire. But most will get a letter directing recipients to an online form.

Ross to testify again before Congress

Fun Fact: Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has been invited back to testify before Congressional lawmakers.

Ross, who oversees the Census Bureau, will appear before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform on March 14 to discuss his decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

After weeks of negotiations, he agreed to the testimony without a subpoena. “Committee members expect Secretary Ross to provide complete and truthful answers to a wide range of questions, including questions regarding the ongoing preparations for the Census, the addition of a citizenship question, and other topics,” committee chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), said in a written statement. “The Committee also expects full compliance with all of our outstanding document requests prior to the hearing.” The Commerce Department is the defendant in lawsuits brought by several states and civil rights groups that allege the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census is “arbitrary and capricious” and violates the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) which prohibits federal agencies from deviating from the law. The suit also alleges the addition of the question will result in a massive undercount, especially in communities with large immigrant populations. An undercount will result in a loss of federal, state and local representation as well as decreased funding for infrastructure, schools, hospitals and other programs that rely on allocations of federal funds.

City slammed for nonprofit contract delays
Behind in rent, facing eviction.
Founded in 1979, the Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation (NMIC) was created to assist low income residents in uptown neighborhoods who were at risk for eviction. It has since spent the past 40 years expanding upon its original mission with client-centered programs focused on affordable housing; skills training and employment; and immigration assistance.
But NMIC, which is located at 45 Wadsworth Avenue, itself was recently on the brink of eviction.

It was six months behind in its rent. “Imagine the embarrassment of having NMIC getting evicted, when we were founded to prevent evictions in our community,” remarked Lizardo. “The system needs to be fixed. If we don’t get paid, we can’t pay our staff and we can’t provide services.” How could NMIC have fallen so behind?
The non-profit organization is not alone, according to City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who is pointing the finger directly at the de Blasio administration and demanding that the city pay up what is owed to thousands of nonprofit organizations owed money for contract work done for city agencies.
Stringer released a report on January 31 revealing that the de Blasio administration submitted 89 percent of human service contracts late in 2018. More than half of them were submitted more than six months late, Stringer said, and some lag behind by almost two years.

This wild, spiney evergreen shrub always makes me smile when I see it's golden blaze. It flowers all year round and smells of sweet, heavenly coconut on warm days which takes me back to childhood summers spent in rural North Wales. Strangely the scent is said to be pungent to some and very mild to others. I'm glad I fall into the first category! Traditionally Gorse provided fuel for firing ovens, was crushed to be used as fodder for livestock and was bound with Heather to make floor and chimney brushes. It is still such a valuable plant which grows in a wide range of habitats providing shelter and food for many insects and birds. Funny common names include Furse, Whin, Fingers-and-thumbs, French-fuzz and Honey-bottle.

Forged from the hearth

Carrot Top Pastries has been Northern Manhattan’s heart and soul of sweets since 1979.

While the Washington Heights bakery is going strong, the Inwood location is scheduled to close in February.

Pedro Prudencio has worked at the bake shop’s original Inwood location for 12 years. He arrived from Mexico with little food or baking experience. But he quickly learned how to bake carrot cookies, toss salads and make sandwiches.

In the beginning, the carrot muffins were the hardest to get right. “You’d have to mix it, and put it in the little cups and bake it. And set the time,” he said. “Sometimes I forgot and burned some of them.” He eventually mastered the muffins. He found that he loved the work. “I love to be here,” he said. “I love to help people. I meet a lot of people, a lot of customers and you get to know them.” On his days off, customers ask about him. “They miss me, too,” Prudencio said.

Currency in Community
Growing up in Puerto Rico, Frances Negrón-Muntaner had a place to go after school.

She and her friends always knew where to go, knew whose families welcomed neighborhood children into their homes for a few hours every day.

These kindnesses – and essentially, services – were never formally repaid with cash. But Negrón-Muntaner says these types of informal arrangements enrich communities.

Negrón-Muntaner is a filmmaker and Professor of Caribbean Literature and Politics at Columbia University. She, together with multi-disciplinary artist and educator Sarabel Santos Negrón (no relation) teamed up to create Valor y Cambio, which starts this February in Puerto Rico.

Valor y Cambio is a multi-part project; part community currency, part storytelling, and part social transformation. The project had its genesis when Negron-Muntaner started researching the topic of unpayable debt. When countries’ economies go south and national currencies lose value, residents create ways of storing value for goods and services in alternative or community currencies.

Santos Negrón and Negrón-Muntaner designed a paper-based community currency that also has a dual story-telling component. People get bills, or pesos, from a re-vamped ATM machine by telling a story. The bills can be used at participating businesses.
Currently, 40 businesses in towns across Puerto Rico offer discounts in exchange for the bills. Recently, even more businesses have expressed interest in the project.

City expands Pre-K dual language programs

It was a mitin for Michaela.

Michaela is a kindergartener currently enrolled in dual language programs at P.S. 128, and also participated in the dual language Spanish program for Pre-K.

Her mother, Washington Heights resident Michelle Colindres, said her daughter reads books, sings songs, learns colors and numbers, and interacts with other kids in both English and Spanish. “My husband is from Honduras, and it’s very important to both of us that our children are bilingual,” she said. “We try to speak as much as we can, but it can be challenging. Pre-K was a great opportunity for Michaela to be fully immersed in the language.” The family joined with Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza, among other officials, for the announcement on Mon., Feb. 4th that the city is launching a major expansion of the Dual Language programs.

47 new Pre-K Dual Language programs will debut across the five boroughs this fall.

For the first time, the Department of Education (DOE) will offer Pre-K dual language programs in Hebrew, French, Haitian-Creole, and Japanese. Dual language programs are currently available in Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Russian and Bengali.

De Blasio and Carranza announced the dual language expansion during a press conference in Washington Heights on Monday, the first day of the application period for the city’s Pre-K and 3-K programs in the 2019-20 school year.

St. Rose of Lima will close

It’s not usually good news when parents get texts from their children’s school.

Sandino Sánchez knew something was wrong. The St. Rose of Lima elementary school reserves text messages for early dismissal or emergency closings.

The text, sent around 1 p.m. Monday afternoon, instructed parents to look in their children’s school bags for an important message. When his two children returned home, they were crying.

The note said that St. Rose of Lima would close at the end of the academic year.

The news left students and parents reeling. The students were told about the closure earlier in the day.
Many of them came home weeping and confused. His daughter is in third grade, and his son is in seventh grade and had one more year at the school. “That is not how you tell children,” Sánchez said.

Other parents agreed. Carlos Taveras said that his two sons were also upset and didn’t quite understand why the school was closing. He said the Archdiocese of New York could have planned the announcement in a way that gave both children and parents more time to absorb the news.

St. Rose, which serves students from Pre-K through 8th grades, is one of seven Catholic schools the Archdiocese has announced it will close at the end of the current academic year.

“We have come with dreams”‬ Yeni González García is hungry.

Understandably so, as it is late afternoon and she hasn’t yet had a chance to eat. But she’ll wait a bit longer. There is always one more person who stops to greet her, or to ask for a photo.

Though she is recognized by many, the petite mother of three is shy and says little. She is unfailingly polite, her eyes watchful. “Oh, sí, hi,” she says to yet another well-wisher who grasps her hand.

García is at the very unlikely center of the maelstrom that is Washington D.C. in the hours leading up to the State of the Union.

The annual address is issued by the President to a joint session of the U.S. Congress at the beginning of the calendar year – and García has come to town specifically to hear President Donald Trump’s speech in the House Chamber.

She is the special invited guest of Rep. Adriano Espaillat, whose Congressional district includes the Bronx and Northern Manhattan, including the East Harlem Cayuga Centers facility that housed detained children who had been separated from their family members after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

The facility, located on Park Avenue near East 131st Street, was used by the federal government to process nearly 300 children under the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy. ‪Read more at www.ManhattanTimesNews.com or click link in bio... #WashHts #Harlem #Inwood #Dyckman #EastHarlem #ElBarrio #WHIN #Bronx #NYC #WashingtonHeights #Uptown #UptownNYC #UptownLove #WashHeights

Free Tax Prep

The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) will offer free tax preparation services at 20 of its developments this year.

Services are not limited to those living in NYCHA but are are available and free to all city residents.

In partnership with the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) and the Food Bank for New York City, NYCHA will also host tax prep services at its community centers and Jobs-Plus sites through April 12. The Food Bank For New York City is partnering with NYCHA’s Office of Resident Economic Empowerment and Sustainability (REES) to offer the service. “Last year, we expanded our free tax prep services to assist more than 1,900 individuals who received nearly $3 million dollars in tax refunds – making a real difference in the lives of NYCHA families and other low-income New Yorkers,” said NYCHA Interim Chair and CEO Stanley Brezenoff. “We are thrilled to continue this successful program in 2019 as we expect thousands of families in all five boroughs to benefit from this free service.” Other partner organizations include Good Shepherd Services, Catholic Charities Community Services, Police Athletic League (PAL), SoBRO, Goodwill NYNJ, Brooklyn Community Services, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, CAMBA, Graham Windham, Henry Street Settlement and ResCare Workforce Services.

HUD announces deal for NYCHA oversight

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced an agreement to appoint a federal monitor to oversee the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA). The federal monitor will closely supervise NYCHA in attempt to rectify longstanding issues at the city’s public housing complexes, including lack of heat and hot water, mold, vermin, and lead-based paint.

On Thursday, HUD Secretary Ben Carson traveled to New York City to make the announcement and sign a deal with Mayor Bill de Blasio.

As part of the agreement, the city is committing at least $2.2 billion to NYCHA over the next 10 years, while HUD will continue to provide funding to the housing authority, which is estimated to be $1.5 billion in 2019.

The agreement does not include a federal takeover of NYCHA, which has been threatened by HUD in the past.

Coke grant program focuses on tech careers

SJay Weathers is something of a bottle rocket.

The young Harlem resident is the winner of a competition led by the Coca-Cola Company USA to support local communities.

Weathers, 23, was selected as the winner of the Dear Future New York City Challenge, which was designed to help connect youth with career development opportunities.

The competition, which received submissions in fall 2018, asked New Yorkers ages 18 to 24 to submit ideas for how young people can receive better preparation for technology careers.

It was sponsored by Coca-Cola Company’s local bottling partner, Liberty Coca-Cola Beverages.

Weathers, who won the $30,000 grant, devised ideas to help young adults with skills training for technical jobs and opportunities for networking.

In collaboration with nonprofit partner Per Scholas, Weathers will attempt to help Information Technology (IT) students start their careers on more solid footing.
Weather has sought to organize Per Scholas graduates into an advisory committee, craft networking events for students, and create mentoring opportunities between former and current Per Scholas participants.

Public meeting held for Inwood playground rehab

They’re keen on Kett.

Approximately 20 local residents and parks officials gathered for a public scoping meeting on Tuesday night to solicit feedback on NYC Parks’ planned renovation of Inwood’s Monsignor Kett Playground.

The city is poised to fund a $14 million makeover of the playground, famous for its annual summertime hosting of the Dyckman Basketball League, which has drawn professional NBA players to watch and participate.

The playground is located on West 204th Street between Nagle and 10th Avenue, near the Dyckman Houses public housing complex.‎ Opened in 1949, the playground was named in honor of Monsignor Francis J. Kett, the former founder and pastor of nearby Saint Jude’s Roman Catholic Church, and initially designed for recreational use by tenants of Dyckman Houses.

Renovations to the site are part of the community benefits promised by the city as part of the Inwood rezoning plan.

According to NYC Parks, the playground had its last significant renovation in 1995.

February is Low Vision Awareness Month

Not being able to see your favorite television show or read your favorite book can be devastating.

But there are steps you can take to continue to enjoy your beloved activities and perform everyday tasks even with vision loss.

Dr. Laura Sperazza, Director of Low Vision Services at Lighthouse Guild says, “Low vision is permanent vision loss that cannot be improved with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medicine or surgery. However, new technologies and rehabilitation can make life easier and more fulfilling. The future may be brighter than you think.”

Abandon the appeal

Let it go.

Immigrant advocates in New York rejoiced when a New York federal judge ruled on January 15 against the Trump administration’s effort to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census – and they want to keep it that way.

That relief was short-lived, as the administration moved two days later to appeal the ruling, with the U.S. Justice Department filing a notice to ask the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to review the ruling by District Judge Jesse Furman ordering that the citizenship question be removed.

On January 18, New York City elected officials and immigrant rights groups gathered at the headquarters of service worker union 32BJ SEIU to call on President Donald Trump administration to drop his opposition to the ruling.

They repeated their concerns that the inclusion of a question asking “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” would prevent noncitizens from participating in the Census, leading to a massive undercount. “We know that while the target of the citizenship question is immigrants, the collateral damage will be felt all throughout New York State,” said Steven Choi, Executive Director of the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), which organized the event and helped spearhead a lawsuit against the administration to block the question.
