Growing up in The Bronx and living in District 15 has shown me how important it is to have the people most impacted at the center of decision-making. I have witnessed firsthand the divestment from the immediate and long term needs of our communities. In order to collectively problem solve for our neighborhoods, we require relentless activism and community organizing. My platform is a reflection of my community, my personal and professional experiences, and a commitment to co-governance. I welcome your input in developing a shared vision for our future.
We need rapid response and long term investment to face the immediate threats to our community—all of which have only been exacerbated by Covid-19. If elected to City Council, I will work with grassroots groups to build a coalition in The Bronx to advocate for policies informed directly by the community. I will fight for the betterment of those who are too often overlooked, under-resourced, and who despite all the odds still rise!
To that end, I am rejecting contributions from corporate PACs, pharmaceuticals, police unions, lobbyists, predatory real estate developers and will have a fully people-powered and people funded grassroots campaign.
None of this will be possible without the support and involvement of our communities.Together we can build a better Bronx that works for all of us.
