ALBANY — CSEA leaders and activists from across the state recently attended the New York State Association of Black & Puerto Rican Legislators Conference in Albany. During the event, our members attended programs on economic, cultural and legislative issues.

CSEA also staffed an information table to educate conference attendees about issues of concern to our union, including the 2020 U.S. Census and our efforts to secure an accurate count.

 When you have an important message to get out, you need to cover all areas to reach everyone. We all go to different places, read different papers and watch different TV stations. Getting in front of caucus-goers is a chance to give information to labor leaders and also to meet decision-makers who decide policies that impact me and my community.
