June General Meeting
June 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sheriff Juan Figueroa will discuss ICE in Ulster County and the steps his department is taking to protect immigrants in our community, as well as other changes he is bringing to the sheriff’s department. He will also answer questions from constituents.
Jen Drake of the Dyson Foundation will be speaking about several important issues facing NYS and the upcoming Census. From the loss of federal money and representation to the citizenship question, which most experts will agree will cause a lower response rate, and how frontline organizations like UP can help provide a full and fair Census 2020 count.
This meeting continues our new format where we explore an issue at both the county level and the state or national level. In doing so, we hope to connect our local 2019 races to the Bernie campaign and beyond.
We will also hear updates from our working groups, and discuss our plans for voter registration, Bernie canvassing, and supporting our endorsed local candidates.
