Meet and Greet with New City Councilmember Carlina Rivera
Welcome Carlina Rivera as the new Council Member for District 2, which includes all of the East Village and Greenwich Village east of Fifth Ave. This will be an important chance to get to know Carlina, and for her to get to know the VP community. Carlina grew up in the district and is a lifelong resident of the Lower East Side. She is the daughter of a hardworking single mother who is a civil servant and proud union member. She attended schools and played sports in the area and has spent her professional career directly serving her neighbors. Whether with local non-profits, on the local community board, or in city government, Carlina has fought to preserve and increase permanently affordable housing, created and organized programs for seniors and the homeless, and advocated for after-school programs and small business survival.
