Jumaane-endorsement.png

INBK proudly endorses Jumaane Williams for Lt. Governor!

Jumaane is a fierce advocate and community activist with a long record of accomplishments as a New York City Council member. He is committed to fighting for accountable policing, affordable housing, fixing the subway, fully funding public schools, a corporate polluter fee, universal healthcare, and the Reproductive Health Act. His refusal to accept funding from the fossil fuel industry and corporate charter schools illustrates his commitment to representing the people of New York rather than monied interests. Time and time again, he has put his body, his career, and his word on the line to fight for our state’s most vulnerable. We trust that he will truly be the “people’s Lieutenant Governor” and make advocating for the people of New York his top priority.

We are proud to endorse Zellnor Myrie in SD20. 

After hearing Zellnor speak at multiple meetings and reading his answers to our questionnaire, we trust that he will represent District 20 with integrity and always put his constituents first. As he put it, “Albany can play musical chairs, but people in my district need affordable housing, quality schools and bail reform now, and don’t have time for games.”

Ross-endorsement-2.png

We are proud to announces our endorsement of Ross Barkan in SD22. We believe he represents a fearless brand of progressive politics in a district that has for too long been overlooked by the Democratic Party. Ross has a proven history of speaking truth to power as a journalist and as a columnist before he decided to run for office. Furthermore, his intimate knowledge of the most important policy issues of the day is unparalleled. Once he captures the Democratic nomination, we have no doubt that he will work as a tireless campaigner in the general election and will defeat Republican Sen. Marty Golden come November.

Jaci-endorsement.png

INBK is excited to endorse Jasmine Robinson for State Senate in SD23!

Jasi is community leader and activist who is running for “all of us.” That’s why she has rejected the corporate donors that have funded her opponent, incumbent Diane Savino, including REBNY, charter schools and LLCs. She is committed for fighting for public schools, criminal justice reform and to protect immigrant New Yorkers. Above all she is committed to listening to and learning from the needs of her constituents and we know she will stick to that promise.

 

 

 

 

Liuba-endorsement.png

We are proud to endorse Liuba Grechen Shirley in CD2.

Liuba is a fierce advocate for women and families who is running not as a connected establishment candidate, but because she genuinely cares about her community.  We know that WHEN she is elected, she will fight for families, for universal healthcare, campaign finance reform, the DREAM Act, fair environmental policies, and more.

Rose-endorsement.png

We are excited to announce our endorsement of Democrat Max Rose for New York’s eleventh congressional district. Max is a combat veteran with experience in both healthcare and government. When he addressed our membership, we appreciated his focus on campaign finance reform, voting reforms and support for our unions as well as his experience in tackling substance & opioid abuse. Above all, we believe that Max has the energy, drive and commitment to see this race through, whether that means successfully defeating GOP primary challenger Michael Grimm or incumbent Representative Dan Donovan.
