It’s election time in Queens. On June 25, New York City is holding an election for the Queens District Attorney. If we want to push for real change in the criminal justice system, we have to pay attention to these races and remind people what’s at stake: racial justice, social justice, economic justice, and ending mass incarceration. We can’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.
If you’re a Queens voter or not, you can help by joining Amplify Her, The Broad Room, Women of Color for Progress, and Queer Amisú on Saturday, June 22 as we door-knock for Tiffany Cabán!
