Call the Irish Caucus l Episode 7: Council Member Carlina Rivera

December 21, 2020

This week, CM Rivera provides us with an invaluable behind-the-scenes look into the bureaucratic challenges of managing the COVID-19 pandemic in NYC, from canceling the St. Patrick's Day Parade to advocating for healthcare workers' mental health and safety, and more.
