SUN has hired a new organizer!
Emily Bishop has joined SUN after working with the state-wide environmental group, New Yorkers Against Fracking, where she organized Central New Yorkers in the fight against fracking in New York State. She has experience at turning people out for rallies, strategizing on campaigns, writing press releases, and using social media.
Emily studied Sociology, Latin American Studies and Community Development at State University of New York at Purchase College where she learned to speak spanish and got angry with capitalism. She is originally from Syracuse, NY and is excited for the opportunity to work with a grassroots group like SUN in her hometown.
While SUN has been a part of a lot of city-wide initiatives, Emily would like to hear from our members about what issues are affecting them and what she should work on through SUN to serve the needs of the South and West Sides of Syracuse.
Emily also recently joined the near Westside neighborhood as a resident of Otisco Street!
