6. Studies show that arts and cultural organizations led by people of color are often underfunded, resulting in limited capacity to provide critical support to young people and communities around NYC. What will you do to provide more leadership around an equitable distribution of resources to ensure their sustainability and growth?
As Mayor, my administration will focus on the equitable distribution of funding and opportunities across our city. We will have a schools chancellor in place whose responsibility is to make sure every child in every community is afforded the same opportunity, with checks and balances to ensure accountability. To do such, we need to streamline the process and eliminate obstacles and bureaucracy. Principals will be tasked with reporting directly to the chancellor any shortcomings of resources and they will be addressed immediately.
