For New York City to strongly recover from the pandemic, the City must provide support and protection to its families. Whether it’s making key family needs like childcare more affordable or facilitating the expansion of broadband to underserved populations, the city must ensure families have the resources to thrive. Julie has been a leader on the Council in fighting for issues that most impact New York’s families. Julie has been working hard for New York City’s families:
Introducing and passing groundbreaking legislation that sets New York City on track to be the first city in America to implement universal childcare. As childcare is one of the biggest single costs to families and one of the most significant reasons for women leaving the workforce, creating a complete childcare system without income restrictions, geographical limitations, or employment status will be a critical support to families.
Pioneering an initiative to sign up hundreds of NYCHA residents across our District for free broadband service in order to bridge the digital divide. This initiative has been replicated in other Council Districts across the City.
Allocating critical funding to domestic violence awareness and support organizations
Julie will continue advocating for families and will serve as a critical partner to the Administration as universal childcare begins to roll out across New York City
