Jabari Brisport is running in a three-way primary for a recently vacated State Senate seat in New York. He has been recognized as a rising star in progressive politics, and has been an advocate for affordable housing and health care for all.

Jamaal Bowman is a public school teacher and principal in the Bronx who is running for the U.S. House in New York's 16th District to unseat a 16-term incumbent Democrat.

In Congress he will lead the fight for investing in our public schools, ending mass incarceration, and addressing the housing crisis. He is someone we can trust to be a powerful advocate for a progressive agenda in Congress.
