Nation Leadership Program, Fall 2017
Adam Srayi was a Public Policy and Employment Apprentice in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program. He researched the unemployment rate for people with disabilities in Long Beach, California, with a focus on the Latino community. With RespectAbility, he worked to find a model to increase the employment rate and opportunities for people with disabilities in Long Beach and the greater California area.
Before working with RespectAbility, Srayi worked with the Benjamin Center at SUNY New Paltz where he researched and compiled the data for a map of the City of Newburgh. The map highlighted all locations in the area that provided services to those with low or no income. Srayi is a graduate of SUNY New Paltz, with a Bachelor’s degree in political science, and minors in creative writing and women’s gender and sexuality studies. He enjoys trying to find creative solutions to political problems, particularly regarding the most vulnerable and marginalized groups. Srayi hopes to hold public office in the future.
