SUPPORTING OUR
MOVEMENT

It’s time to recognize the forgotten people of the Bronx. Those who have been unable to access economic mobility and are prevented from living in dignity.  We must set the City on a sustainable course that involves citizens in solutions that preserve neighborhoods and maintains them as wholesome places to live and thrive.

SAMUEL NEMIR-OLIVARES

DISTRICT LEADER | 53RD ASSEMBLY DISTRICT

“When elected in the Bronx, Elisa Crespo will become the first transgender person in the City Council and to hold a legislative office in the state of New York. This historic advancement will cause ripple effects throughout the country confirming that LGBTQ and transgender candidates are as qualified and talented. I’m excited about Elisa’s campaign — she’s pushing a transformative and creative vision that includes a municipal jobs guarantee program for low-income people and vulnerable populations, and fighting for housing and environmental justice. Her personal life experiences — going through economic hardship, discrimination, sex work, family issues, and being a working-class New Yorker — Elisa understands the struggles and opportunities needed of everyday New Yorkers. She’s smart, eloquent, and shares an electric and contagious energy that will inspire many in the fight for social justice.”

LGBTQ VICTORY FUND

MAYOR ANNISE PARKER | PRESIDENT & CEO

“We’re proud to endorse Elisa Crespo, who is running to represent the 15th district in the Bronx on the New York City Council. Elisa is a trailblazing, trans-Latina whose historic run is significant for the LGBTQ community. Elisa is poised to be the first trans voice on the New York City Council from the Bronx. Her allyship and solidarity with the LGBTQ movement will deliver unprecedented representation in local politics.”

TRANS UNITED

Trans United partners with visionary transgender leaders and organizations to build the collective capacity of the trans community and to improve the lives of transgender people, our families, and our allies.

NORTH WEST BRONX DEMOCRATS

ANTHONY RIVIECCIO & SHEILA SANCHEZ

“Elisa possesses a unique sense of justice, bravery, and inclusion that will be a refreshing change to Bronx Politics. We're proud to support her and her historic campaign for City Council.”
