Testimonies

Public Hearings are an important element of the political process. New York City Council and the New York State Legislature regularly schedule opportunities for individuals or representatives of organizations to present their perspective to decisionmakers on legislation, budgets or emerging public policy issues. The JBFCS Public Policy & Government Relations Department insures that our agency takes advantage of these opportunities by facilitating testimony by relevant JBFCS staff. These are some recent examples of testimony we delivered.
