Van Dolsen: “… amplify
our voices …”

WHITE PLAINS – A number of organizations are banding together in Westchester to form the Westchester Social Justice Community.
The consortium of community groups and non-profits was formed in respond to President Donald Trump’s agenda, said Susan Van Dolsen, a co-founder of the network who heads up Westchester4Change.
“We are all anxious to work together and amplify our voices for social justice in all areas meaning racial equality, immigration, environmental issues, healthcare, education, all the issues that area now being threatened, all the people who are impacted, when the new administration decides to marginalize these communities,” Van Dolsen said.
Beginning next Monday, the groups will gather for “Justice Monday” at noon at the fountain in the Renaissance Plaza in White Plains to highlight the need to protect the 20 million Americans who could lose health care if the Affordable Care Act is repealed, said Van Dolsen.
