LGBT Clinton Supporters To Host Pre-Primary Meeting At Club Evolution


April 4, 2016 By Michael Florio

The race to the White House will make a stop in Jackson Heights this week.

Council Member Daniel Dromm, along with the Hillary Clinton campaign team, will host a meeting to help organize volunteers who are interested in supporting in her run for the presidency.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Club Evolution, located at 76-19 Roosevelt Ave. While the meeting will be open to the public, it was have a strong focus on the LGBT community, according to Dromm.

The purpose is to allow volunteers the ability to properly network and plan how they can spread the word before the New York primary on April 19th.

“We will organize so people can be prepared to help,” Dromm said. “Volunteers will put out phone calls, hand fliers on street corners and spread the word.”

“This is a rallying call for her campaign and we want to get the word out now,” he added.

He expects a “couple of dozen” of people to attend. Clinton will not be at the meeting.

Dromm, who publicly endorsed Clinton in January, expects the LGBT community to strongly support the presidential candidate.

“The strong majority of LGBT elected officials have endorsed Hillary Clinton,” Dromm said. “She has been a big supporter of the LGBT community since long ago.”

Clinton walked with Dromm and other LGBT community members in the New York City Pride Parade and the St. Pat’s for All parades in 2000, he said.

“She has always supported the LGBT community and now we will support her,” Dromm said.

Dromm plans to host many pro-Clinton events if she goes on to win the Democratic nomination.

“We will do a lot more as we get closer to the general election,” he said. “I am a big believer in Hillary and wanted to help anyway that I could.”

Dromm previously helped the Clinton campaign collect petition signatures.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
