Didn't see this posted anywhere but it is in the news: BLM backlash over Cuba comments

BLM Per NBC News:

... the organization urged the U.S. to lift the embargo immediately and appeared to praise the country. “The people of Cuba are being punished by the U.S. government because the country has maintained its commitment to sovereignty and self-determination,” the message read."

The response:

"Black Cuban organizations in the country have done their best to send out their own messages in the wake of the protests. Alianza Afro-Cubana, an advocacy organization for Black LGBTQ Cubans, said in a social media statement that the Cuban government “should listen to the people, serve them” instead of criminalizing them. The group called on Black Lives Matter to “sit down and have a conversation about solidarity."

“We call on activists and anti racist groups to be concerned about the situation of Black people, who bear the heaviest burden of violence,” the statement reads. “Cuba continues to show its racist reality and that justice has a selective condition.”

Not sure what the NYC Mayoral Candidates position is on Telework

But there's a petition up to make telework permanent for NYC government workers

According to the site it was started by two DC 37 union members.

Also does anyone know if any of the candidates have weighed in on this issue?
