Actress Cynthia Nixon is headed to Albany to advocate for education.

The former co-star of "Sex and the City" will join school superintendents and others at the state Capitol seeking more support for schools as Gov. Andrew Cuomo and lawmakers try to agree on a budget by April 1.

Nixon has been active in state and city politics. She headlined a gala for Bill de Blasio during his successful run for New York City mayor last year and lobbied for the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York in 2011.
