LIPC Director Lisa Tyson named one of City & State New York Long Island Power 50

The Long Island Progressive Coalition is very proud of our Director Lisa Tyson for being name to City and State New York  Long Island 50 Power List.

An expert at grass-roots organizing, Lisa Tyson has been behind some of the most uphill political battles on Long Island in recent history. She galvanized commuter support for the Long Island Rail Road’s third track, helped pass the law increasing the state’s minimum wage and pushed affordable housing projects in Huntington and Southampton over the finish line. She skillfully fills an assortment of roles, from policy wonk to fundraiser to advocate, and has become a leader of Long Island’s “resistance” movement.
