State Sen. Daniel Squadron will be hosting his annual Community Convention on Sunday afternoon.

In reference to the many challenges posed by Trumpism, this year’s theme is, “Make the National Fight Local.” The event will take place from 2-5 p.m. at Stuyvesant High School, 345 Chambers St.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Akeem Browder, who became a criminal justice reform advocate after the tragic suicide of his brother, Kalief Browder, at Rikers Island. Constituents will be able to attend sessions on a wide variety of topics, including affordable housing, transportation, education, defending civil rights, senior services and the environment. Squadron uses feedback from his conventions to decide what issues to emphasize in the coming year.

You can RSVP for the convention here. Squadron represents the 26th Senate District, which includes the Lower East Side and Chinatown.
