Why I’m Running

Our district faces systemic problems made worse by modern crises and the failures of elected officials. Housing, criminal justice, healthcare, public safety, and immigration systems weren’t designed to benefit hard working people like you. Changing the system requires an independent City Council Member who will be laser focused on one thing only, the needs of our community, and together we will fight for dignified and courageous policies. I have a proven track record of co-creating that systemic change, and I’m ready to take that work to City Hall to design a city that works for ALL of us.

Dignity & Justice

for All

A Proven Track Record

Fought for and defended the human rights of all New Yorkers

As Commissioner of the NYS Division of Human Rights, Angela aggressively investigated and prosecuted discriminatory landlords and employers, awarding a total of $6 million to tenants and employees abused or discriminated against.

Won transformative immigrant’s rights policies from NYC District 10 to the White House

As Executive Director of Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights, Angela fought for and won ground-breaking policy campaigns, reunited thousands of families, and created the first Worker Center for Day Laborers in Northern Manhattan.

Led historic turnaround of the National Dominican Day Parade

Angela was recruited to transform the largest Dominican cultural institution in the US. Angela and her team raised $800,000, instituted the first major scholarship fund for students of Dominican descent, and turned it into a transparent charitable organization.

Angela’s Platform

Affordable Green Housing

as a human right

It It is indefensible to have housing in collapse on one block and empty condominiums on the next. Truly affordable and healthy homes for all New Yorkers is within our reach.   

GREEN AND DIGNIFIED WORK

as a human right

Climate change is a global emergency and we have a chance to boost living wage jobs and simultaneously close the wealth inequality gap.

SAFETY, WELLNESS & RECREATION

as a human right

Policies of violence have bankrupted our community. Our community becomes stronger and safer by investing in holistic services and structures that prevent harm and center wellness and our ability to thrive.

EDUCATIONAL EQUITY

as a human right

Our educational system is one of the most segregated in the country. Years of cuts have robbed generations of pathways towards life-affirming futures. Real community control can reverse these trends.

ECONOMIC PROSPERITY
FOR ALL

as a human right

Within a 15 minute walk, our district has the talent and resilience to drive economic growth and protect small business. We can close the wealth gap by harnessing equity and sustainability as our tools for economic development.

Leading Through a
Co-Governance Framework

Participation in policies and the systems that shape our lives is a human right. It’s time to go beyond speaking from the folding chair to leading and sharing power, from the block to City Hall.

WE CAN BUILD THE FUTURE

together

Tell us what matters to you and through compassion and creativity we will discover new solutions to old problems.
