On October 2nd 2014, LIPC joined with a large group of aligned progressive organizations to announce their endorsement of Adrienne Esposito for NY State Senate in the 3rd district and urges its members to vote for Adrienne Esposito on November 4th.
At the rally Lisa Tyson, LIPC Director spoke at the importance of this endorsement rally. “Progressives of Long Island came together so the invisible Long Island voice could be invisible no more. We are here carrying the message of the voiceless and electing Adrienne Esposito to the Senate will bring that voice to Albany.” Tyson continued, “We need a fighter in Albany who will provide quality education for all students and finally pass fair elections legislation and Adrienne will do that.”
