Seniors Travel to Albany to Lobby with TeachNYS

Heschel Seniors made a trip to Albany to lobby with TeachNYS, a grassroots organization lobbying for government funding of STEM and security for nonpublic schools. The visit provided the students with a taste of the legislative, democratic process at work. They met with the office of their district's state senator and the office of an assemblyman and also heard from the state attorney general and other state senators.
