Young Invincibles testifies before NYC Council on college student homelessness

Young Advocate and Lehman College student Zaret Cortorreal testifies before NYC Council.

Even before COVID-19, the City University of New York had a homelessness crisis, with nearly 15 percent of students experiencing homelessness in a given year. On Thursday, January 14, our New York team testified before the New York City Council to discuss how the pandemic has left more CUNY students facing homelessness and hunger. 

Our testimonies are linked here, and a video of the hearing can be found here.
