On Wednesday, Feb. 19, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Brooklyn Borough Hall, New York Communities for Change is hosting a Brooklyn Town Hall to discuss the city's plan for pre-K and after-school programs.

Under the plan, all 4-year-olds would have access to universal pre-K for the first time in New York City’s history. This would help 53,767 children who currently receive part-time pre-K or no pre-K at all.

New York City's plan would also aggressively expand after-school learning opportunities for nearly 120,000 middle school students, adding new programs between 3 and 6 p.m. in academics, culture and athletics.

New York Communities for Change is a coalition of working families in low- and moderate-income communities throughout New York state.
