11.7.13 – New Yorkers now have a new mayor, so we are all coming to the table, engaging our communities and Talking Transition. Talking Transition is an open conversation about the future of New York City. The conversation will spread across the city – from an open tent filled with events on Canal Street opening this Saturday, to mobile “tents” that will be setup in public spaces throughout the boroughs, to online forums on talkingtransitionnyc.com.
For 26 years, NYWF has looked to its grantee partners for the most innovative solutions to the complex problems in their communities. With the knowledge and expertise of our grantee partners, we will convene a panel and seek to influence the new administration on policies that consider the unique challenges of women across New York City.
The New York Women’s Foundation will host a moderated panel with our grantee partners discussing
Advancing Economic Justice for Women and Families in NYC.
The panel will be moderated by Rossana Rosado, Publisher of El Diario – La Prensa and includes:
A Better Balance Co-President Sherry Leiwant
FIERCE Co-Director Krystal Portalatin
Grand Street Settlement Executive Director Margarita Rosa
Violence Intervention Program Executive Director Cecilia Gaston
New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault Executive Director Mary Haviland
Center for Family Life in Sunset Park Co-Director Julia Jean-Francois
Community Health Action of Staten Island Executive Director Diane Arneth
The New York City Anti-Violence Project Executive Directio Sharon Stapel
Sakhi for South Asian Women Executive Director Tiloma Jayasinghe
