My name is
Zohran Kwame Mamdani

I'm a housing counselor and Indian-Ugandan New Yorker and the Democratic Nominee for the 36th Assembly District. Our housing is unaffordable and our bills are unpayable. The reason is that big landlords and corporations have too much power, and tenants and workers don't have enough. I want to help our neighbors take their power back.

Vote by November 3rd!

"As a public defender, I worked with clients every day who lost their freedom because of a racist mass incarceration system. As a housing counselor, Zohran works with families who are losing their homes to a system that puts profits over people. I’m supporting him because I know he’ll put people first."

"We’re facing a crisis of inequality and greed in our country and in our state...To solve it, we need elected officials who have the political courage to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations to fund the life-saving public goods and services that our communities rely on. Zohran has what it takes to meet the challenge."

"In order to build a New York that works for everyone, we need to support candidates who are willing to fight for bold solutions to the problems that millions of families face across our state. That’s why I’m proud to partner with Zohran and why I’m endorsing his campaign for State Assembly."
