State and Local Politics Lecture Series: Advocating for Change from the Outside

This panel focuses on advocating for change from outside the political system, to examine how people may effectively influence policy without holding elected office. Founder of the Women’s Diversity Network Shanequa Levin, Director of OLA (Organizacion Latino Americana) of Eastern Long Island Minerva Perez, and Suffolk County Progressives Director Shoshana Hershkowitz discuss their experiences organizing diverse people, interacting with government, and advocating for policy change.
Moderated by Philip Dalton, PhD, Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Public Advocacy, Hofstra University.


The State and Local Politics Lecture Series examines key issues in New York politics and governance through lectures, panels, conferences, and other events.  The series seeks to engage students who are keenly interested in local, statewide, and community issues.
