Race to Represent: An Interview with State Senator Brian Benjamin

In 2017, Senator Brian Benjamin was elected to the NY State Senate in a special election after the seat was left vacant by Bill Perkins. In just one year, he’s sponsored 23 bills and hopes to continue serving the people of Harlem and the Upper West Side next year.

This Sunday on “Race to Represent,” Dr. Christina Greer sits down with Senator Benjamin to discuss his first year in office and his priorities for a second term; including passing the Neighborhood Integrity Act and the Reproductive Health Act, securing funding for NYCHA repairs, protecting small businesses from commercial gentrification, and more.

Tune in on Sunday, October 14, at 8 pm on MNN1 (Spectrum 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33), MNNHD (Spectrum 1993) or MNN's YouTube channel.
