Dear friends and family,
I’m really doing it. After 13 years of learning from the best activists and advocates in our community, I’m running for New York State Assembly.
When I came to New York City in 2006, I worked three jobs and slept on the floor of a shared 5 person apartment, thanks to my very generous friend, Sarah. Since then, I worked my way through– and I’ve learned through action and experience. I am a regular person and I’ve struggled in the average New York City way, and together alongside my community, I’ve been able to find my bearings time and again. It’s now time for me to take what I’ve learned from this community and use it to our greater benefit. I believe that New York should be a beacon of progressive action, with North Brooklyn leading the charge. I want to see more mobilization on environmental justice, climate resilence, gender & racial equity, safe streets, housing and healthcare for all. I want to push us towards meaningful reforms at school, at work and at the polls. I’ve lived in this state nearly my entire life, and I love it deeply. I believe we can be better, and I am willing to work for it. To do this I am going to need your support. We have always been a team, and this year will be no exception. I’d love for you become a stakeholder in my campaign, and on September 23rd, when we launch, I want you beside me. Please bring a friend, join our team and attend! You can RSVP by donating HERE! No one will be turned away for lack of funds, but I guarantee you in this race we will need every penny you can spare. This email is a sneak peak– our campaign goes LIVE on the 23rd. You’re the first to know! When we get to launch day, I’ll share with you our new social channels so you can follow along! We have a great, educational campaign planned.
Much love to you,
Emily PS– If you can’t attend, please consider making a donation to help get us started! You can even set up a recurring contribution!
So there have you.
