Just as our previous melting-pot mixture allowed our nation to become great, the demographic shifts we are currently experiencing can work in our favor, as well. We need to foster cultures of inclusion, where the differences that make us unique are celebrated and harnessed for innovation.
Of the 5,229 students accepted to the city's eight Specialized High Schools this year, only 618 were black or Hispanic, a decline of nearly 16 percent in one year alone.
The chair of national party with millions of members announcing a $10 million spend for a "bottom-up approach" shows a complete lack of understanding of the meaning of a bottom-up movement.
Access to technology is the great equalizer and STEM workers stand at the forefront of innovation in the U.S. economy. As technological changes reshape the world of work, these professionals will continue to be in demand.

We should move to expand early voting, not limit it. I call for same day voter registration in New York and throughout our country. The Voting Rights Act has been central in the transformation that has made America's diversity our strength. Let's not turn back the hands of time.
