Hundreds of kids from Henry Street Settlement and other organizations rallied yesterday afternoon at the Sol Lain Playground to protest Mayor Bloomberg’s decision to cut after school programs. The Lower East Side would be hit especially hard if the City Council does not persuade the mayor to restore funding. There’s another rally planned this evening at P.S. 124 at 140 Division Street at 6 p.m. The event is being coordinated by the Chinese American Planning Council. City Council member Margaret Chin will be in attendance.
We desperately need after school program funding.Otherwise,what will these children do while their parents are working.We do not need another generation of latch key children!
If they are not in their seats they will be in the streets
I don’t know what I would have done without after school programs for my children. keep those programs open, keep our children safe and off the streets.
