Action Alert
Bronx Assemblyman Dinowitz never hired a black staffer in 25 years
Author of bills to repeal religious exemption, and mandatory flu shots

     Bronx Assemblymember Jeffrey Dinowitz (D-Riverdale), the author of bills to eliminate the religious exemption from vaccine mandates for New York students, and a bill to require annual flu shots for children in pre-school or daycare, admitted in a deposition that in his 25-year career as an elected official he has never hired an African-American. According to the 2010 census the Bronx is 38% African American, and only 11% non-Hispanic white. 

     The deposition was part of an investigation into charges that members of Dinowitz’s staff engaged in activities to prevent low-income students of color from enrolling in a highly sought-after school in Dinowitz’s district. The story broke in the NY Daily News. 


    Dinowitz was also recently appointed Chair of the Judiciary Committee of the Assembly which is responsible for, among other duties, vetting and approving all candidates for state judge positions. 

    In the new legislative session in Albany beginning next week we are anticipating, a much stronger effort to pass Dinowitz’s vaccine legislation. A legislator’s reputation among his or her colleagues has a great deal to do with how well bills are received.
