Democratic Conference Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins spoke at the Neighborhood Preservation Coalition "Affordable Housing" Rally on Monday, March 10th in Albany. Growing up in public housing, Leader Stewart-Cousins knows first-hand the struggles of finding a modestly-priced place to call home, and continues to fight to reduce homelessness in New York. At the rally, she discussed the importance of affordable housing for famillies, how organizations and individuals need to continue to bring issues of affordable housing to light, and how "we need to start thinking creatively about how we house our New York families".
