Ranked Choice Voting: Why it Matters for NYC’s Historic 2021 Election
NYC’s historic 2021 election is fast approaching. With the introduction of ranked choice voting, nearly every city office in play, and hundreds of candidates on the ballot, the June primary has the potential to profoundly transform our city government.
Join JCC Social Justice Activist Ruth Messinger, President and CEO of Queens Public Library Dennis Walcott, Political Director of Jews for Racial & Economic Justice Rachel McCullough, Co-Executive Director of Make the Road New York Theo Oshiro, and Public Affairs and Political Science Professor at Columbia University Ester Fuchs, for a virtual conversation on why this election matters and why ranked choice voting is important, how it addresses inequitable voting across the city, and what it means for democracy at the local level.
This session is co-produced by 4th Universalist Society, JCC Harlem, Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, and SAJ – Judaism That Stands For All.
