Members Take Washington DC

During the summer, 12 young men from Abbe Clubhouse in Flushing, Queens visited the nation’s capital with Congresswoman Grace Meng to witness politics and policy in action.

Members took a detailed tour of the U.S. Capitol Building and met with legislative staff. In the words of Education Director and BCNY alumnus Alexander Bennett, it was magical to see Andrew, an Abbe Junior, look out the window of the bus and share, “This is such a cool experience! I cannot wait to come back!”
