WRI Cohort 15 Alum Hirah Mir Testifies At NYC Council Hearing

On Wednesday, June 22, 2011, WRI cohort 15 alum Hirah Mir testified in front of the NYC Council General Welfare Committee on access to education and training for NYC youth.

“Since the moment I turned 18, the HRA-call in process has placed so many obstacles in my way to prevent me from going to college. Pursuing a college degree is the only way I can improve my financial situation and it is the only way I can accomplish my goals. Expanding access to benefits for young adults is an excellent idea; however they will still have to choose between their benefits and higher education, as I did.”
