WHAT WE'RE
FIGHTING FOR

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.

FIGHTING FOR

JOBS&

JUSTICE

The hard-working people of New York deserve a contract - a guarantee - that our government ensures everybody has access to a home, a job with a living wage, and an education. These are the ingredients of a dignified life.

Coupled with investments in our infrastructure, environment, and health, we can build a more vital city that expands opportunities for all New Yorkers. Our priorities are clear. We need to establish policies that can have life-changing effects on the unemployed and those currently earning poverty wages. 

Our notion of justice is rooted in the equity of our communities. Fair land use, climate action, and criminal justice reform all bear the same weight on our overall public health. Our dignity, our health, our liberation will be achieved when we understand the nuances that link our policy demands together.

A Public Option

for Jobs

New Yorkers deserve a dignified wage. We must make bold investments in our workforce to build a sustainable future through a municipal jobs guarantee.

Quality

Education

Our education system needs to be expanded so that students can thrive, and teachers have access to resources. We need to fully fund our public schools and pay extra attention to the ones in our most low-income neighborhoods.

A New Deal

for CUNY

The Greatest Urban University in the World can deliver the greatest education.

Housing

for All

Amid a housing crisis, New Yorkers need housing that is affordable and accessible.

Restoring

Justice

Our criminal justice system needs to be improved - we must reprioritize our budget, refine our police force, and expand restorative solutions.

Modernize Land

Use

We need to change the top-down nature of the ULURP process to empower our communities.

Empowering

Small Businesses

Small Businesses support our communities, and it’s up to us to provide the resources to help their ability to succeed.

A Healthy

City

Affordable healthcare, expanded services for our aging communities, and access to healthy food can transform our City’s health.

A Green

Bronx

The greenest borough deserves the greenest solutions. Climate change is a reality that we all must work to combat.

Moving

New York

Our transportation has become old and strained. It’s time to reinvest in the most extensive public transit system and keep New York moving.

Expanding Our Democracy

We must raise our voice and amplify our communities’ demands by expanding our Democracy to ensure we all have the power to make a change.

Equality for

All

The security of marginalized communities is integral to the growth of our city’s diversity.
