It was election time in Queens. On June 25, 2019, New York City held an election for the Queens District Attorney. We wanted to push for real change in the criminal justice system and we had to pay attention to these races and remind people what’s at stake: racial justice, social justice, economic justice, and ending mass incarceration. We couldn’t sit this one out.
Enter Tiffany Cabán! Cabán is a 31-year-old, queer, Latina public defender who is running for Queens District Attorney. She earned the second-ever endorsement from AOC. She’s spent her career defending people who can’t afford to defend themselves. And she’s hands-down the most progressive candidate in the race—and looking to change the criminal justice system through community-based solutions as opposed to indictments and sentences.
We teamed up with Amplify Her, Women of Color for Progress, and Queer Amisú to door-knock for Tiffany Cabán!
