The job of the Public Advocate is to ensure that all New Yorkers receive the City services they deserve and have a voice in shaping the policies of our government. Hear first hand from the candidates on the issues!  In collaboration with Coalition for a District Alternative, Grand Street Democrats, New York Downtown Democrats, and Village Reform Democratic Club, the Downtown Independent Democrats hosted a #forum​ with a panel of candidates running for #PublicAdvocate​ in 2021 in an effort to inform New Yorkers of each candidates' policies and positions if they were elected office.
