Building the #FreedomCities Movement featuring Sohel Mahmud

Sohel is a 2016-2017 Delfino Leadership Institute member and DRUM member-leader.

Back in January, worker leaders from the WCF launched the Freedom Cities Movement with the vision of transforming New York into a city that truly provides our communities with both safety and freedom.
