The real, key power of representation is that you not only look like someone who hasn’t been at the table, but that you in fact change the nature of which discussions are prioritized, and that you’re fighting for a different set of priorities that have been ignored.
Whether we’re queer or straight, housed or unhoused, immigrants or native New Yorkers, we cannot let the ruling class pit us against one another. We don’t have to fight each other over scraps from the table - we have to fight together to turn it over.
Zohran Mamdani and Marcela Mitaynes are both tenant organizers and foreclosure prevention counselors. They come out of the housing justice movement that won groundbreaking reforms to our rent laws last year in Albany. Let’s send them back to the state capitol—but on the inside this time—to finish the job and win “good cause” eviction, a true investment in our public housing, and an end to New York’s homelessness crisis.
"In the Astoria district, Mamdani, a Democratic Socialist of America-backed housing organizer,
had 1,393 individual contributions from 1,017 unique donors, whereas Simotas had 103 individual
contributions from 100 unique donors."
"We are proud to support all ongoing efforts to roll back carceral violence in New York State,"

for a world where our commitments to restorative justice are even deeper, and our distance from the
brutality of the criminal punishment system is even greater.”
The young activist said he is running to decommodify housing.
“The market can’t be the only way we determine if someone can
live somewhere, or live at all,”
