Local Elections Matter: Who NOW is Supporting
NOW-NYC Kicks-Off Endorsements for City Council –
NOW-NYC is proud to start off election season with key endorsements for City Council: Amanda Farias of District 18, Francisco Moya of District 21, and Helen Rosenthal of District 6. We are confident that these three candidates will defend women and girls’ rights and enact positive change in their communities.
District 18: Amanda Farias
Amanda Farias is a tireless advocate for women and girls. Having worked alongside women in the City Council, Amanda recognizes the power of bringing female leadership to the table. She managed the Women’s Caucus of City Council, organized rallies on equal pay for women, paid leave, and constructed a budget that prioritizes community initiatives for mothers and young girls. We are certain Amanda is the best candidate in the running for District 18.
District 21: Francisco Moya
Current Assemblymember Francisco Moya is the clear choice for City Council in District 21. The community deserves a candidate that has earned the public’s trust and has the record to prove it, and Moya has a strong and undeniable track record of supporting the issues that matter to women. We can put our trust in him.
District 6: Helen Rosenthal
Helen Rosenthal has always spoken out on the issues important to women across New York. Whether it’s increasing access to reproductive and family planning services for women, helping single mothers find jobs, or pushing to expand mentoring services that re-integrate recently incarcerated women into society, Helen has worked tirelessly to improve life for women and families throughout New York.
