New York Women for Obama


Over the weekend, I met up with (NY) Women for Obama for a press conference at city hall. Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, Councilwoman Leticia James, and actress Kathleen Turner were among those who spoke at the gathering.


I learned about the rally through my Brooklyn for Obama/Women for Obama networks. Other groups representing included South Asians, Latinas, and Jews for Obama as well as Grandmothers against the war–quite a feisty fired-up group of women.
