Thousands of children could lose their childcare and after school programs

 Tomorrow, May 30th at 5 pm – Come join the El Barrio/ East Harlem Youth Violence Task Force for our Town Hall discussion to find out about the Mayor’s Cuts to childcare and afterschool programs and get involved to stop them. The event will be held at the East Harlem Children’s Aid Center – 130 East 101st St (@ Lex).

The Campaign for Children will present on the impact the cuts have on our District and our city. Representatives from organizations in our community will speak out on the cuts as well.

In order to reduce youth violence, we must protect these vital programs which nurture our children and keep them safe after school.  Come join the fight and Learn how you can connect to local actions! They Say Cutback, We Say Fight Back!!

Serrano, Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez, Campaign for Children, Boys and Girls Harbor, Children’s Aid Society, Children’s Arts & Science Workshops, East Harlem Tutorial Program, East Side Houses, Harlem RBI, Just Us Inc., Salvation Army, Stanley Isaacs Center, Supportive Children’s Advocacy Network, and YMCA.
