Hundreds of students and parents rallied with local leaders at Russell Sage Junior High School on Tuesday afternoon, urging the mayor not to cut funds for what they call a crucial local program.
The Beacon School at the junior high has been a cornerstone of Out of School Time programs in the area for years. Hosted by the Queens Community House, it is the after-school home to dozens of children from across the borough.
