Julienne Verdi Interview


Julienne Verdi, the founder of Move Forward Staten Island, describes how her organization sprang up after the 2016 presidential election and united residents wanting to get involved in local social justice issues. She shares how the use of social media helped engage constituents with their elected officials. Verdi also introduces us to “Staten Island’s Huddled Masses,” a short documentary in which Staten Island residents share their family stories of living as immigrants and the children of immigrants. This interview accompanies the short film “Staten Island’s Huddled Masses: An Immigration Storytelling Project,” produced by Move Forward Staten Island and released by CUNY TV Short Docs.
