A Conversation with US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer - January 20th

200 people gathered at the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University to welcome and hear from U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer about the tremendous legislative accomplishments in 2022, his goals and genuine optimism for the year ahead.

Dean Horace Anderson, Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, Michael Romita, CEO of the Westchester County Association, and Jan Fisher, Executive Director, Nonprofit Westchester led a panel discussion with Majority Leader Schumer on the pressing social and economic issues of our time.


Jan Fisher stressed, "The forum showcases some of what makes Westchester so unique and special. The joining together of colleagues from the business, nonprofit, higher education and government sectors is powerful. When we work together, we realize that many of the issues that have often kept us siloed and have slowed progress actually intersect and should not be separated. Workforce development and social justice social, for example, must be part of the same conversations for society to truly advance and solve the pressing economic, social and human rights issues of our day. When we come to the table as respected and respectful colleagues, great things happen for all people."
