We’re getting behind women who are committed to fighting for social justice and economic equality in New York City - women who will stand to protect our right to choose, to end cash bail and broken-windows policing, and to keep ICE out of our courts and out of our communities. Our candidates will know that affordable housing and healthcare are human rights, and will fight to repeal laws such as the Urstadt law and to move towards a single-payer health system. Our candidates are committed to ending voter suppression and disenfranchisement, as they stand to represent the interests of every person living in their communities.
