Last night, the J4AC convened at the Jacob Riis Center for our monthly Community Meeting. Along with many community members, we were joined by Council member Jimmy Van Bramer, who spoke with J4AC for about 30 minutes. Also in the crowd was City Limits Staff Writer Abigail Savitch-Lew who completed a write-up about the event.

The Queens Gazette also covered the event.
