Real Politics 101--Southeast Bronx

Many of you know I am very involved in local politics and believe that if more of us were engaged, we could make great change. While organizing our communities, many have asked me: "Why do we have a two-party system?" "Who can vote in a primary?" "Do local politics really affect me?" This You Matter workshop led by Ben Yee helped me learn a lot and can help our communities political education. **While this event is open to the public and no one will be turned away, a nominal fee of $5 is requested** Bio: Ben Yee's spent his life fighting for good government & open politics and he wants to share his knowledge and connections with YOU. Ben was a fundraiser and Digital Director for Barack Obama in 2008. He later worked for the NY State Senate’s CIO’s office and good government think tank Reinvent Albany.

Politically, Ben has served at every level of the Young Democrats, including VP of the Young Democrats of America. Ben is the founder of ShiftSpark, an online tool for Citizen Lobbying. He is also Secretary of the NY County Democratic Party and State Committeeman for NY’s 66th Assembly District.
