United Way Of New York City Announces Giving Tuesday Live Stream Event
Nonpartisan Advocacy in a Partisan World; Why Public Education is a Smart Choice
Press Release – New York, New York; November 20, 2018 – The United Way of New York City, March United for Public Schools and CommPRO, the leading platform for communications and marketing professionals, is excited to announce a Giving Tuesday, November 27th, panel discussion focusing on education advocacy and the rise of the well-informed consumer expecting more from corporate leadership.
Consumers expect brands to not just deliver great product but to be virtuous corporate citizens as well. And in this political climate to find anything the vast majority of Americans agree upon must be considered a port in this partisan storm. 90% of Americans go to or have gone to public school and each one has their favorite teacher. By supporting public education, you not only give back to the community but help build an enriched workforce, a more educated consumer and a better America.
Hosted by Sheena Wright, President of the United Way of New York City, this panel will discuss the rise of the “woke consumer”, how it effects their purchasing choices and examine ways brands can help New York City public schools and schools across the country.
Moderator: Tracey Wood Mendelsohn, President & CEO, Black Public Relations Society; Panelists include: Fernando Snowden-Lorence, Vice President, Global Philanthropy, The Fellowship Initiative in New York at JPMorgan Chase & Co., Emily Weiss, Principal, Education First, and Carreen Winters, Chair, Reputation Management and Chief Strategy Officer, MWW PR.

March United for Public Schools is a 5k walk to raise awareness and funds for New York City public schools through United Way of New York City programs like ReadNYC, EducateNYC, and FeedNYC. Each program provides resources that promote the academic growth and success to public school children and their families throughout New York City. The march will begin in lower Manhattan then make its way across the Brooklyn Bridge en-route to United Way of New York City’s Future Festival at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
