WILL YOU JOIN OUR TEAM?

I will stand up to Donald Trump and fight the Republican agenda of racism, sexism, and xenophobia. But I can't do it alone. It’s going to take strong grassroots campaign to defeat the powerful interests that have lined up against us.

,
Jackson Heights, NY 11372

Calling all young, progressive women: join us for an empowerment brunch in support of Catalina Cruz! Let’s discuss what activism and women rights looks like in our local community. The Women’s March kicked off the largest, non-violent protest against our current administration in defense of intersectional women’s rights. Since then young women everywhere have fought against racist and xenophobic policies with political courage and moral will. Women like Catalina Cruz, who was inspired by her mother’s courage to start a new life in a foreign place and chase the American Dream.

You can RSVP here or by emailing Tenzin and Sandra at CatalinaCruzNY@gmail.com. For any other questions call us at, (516-605-4094)

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I’m running for the State Assembly to give back to the neighborhoods of Corona, Elmhurst, and Jackson Heights, which have given so much to me and my family. I am ready to be a leader for everyone which is why we have developed a comprehensive plan to support our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. My plan comes after organizing a roundtable discussion with LGBT advocates and community leaders to discuss issues and priorities.

Catalina's LGBT Agenda [Video]

video
Our LGBT community is part of the fabric of who we are. They are our family, friends, and neighbors. Although our City and State have made some great strides towards advancing LGBT rights, much more remains to be done to achieve true equality and ensure the protections and services they deserve.

Our campaign’s LGBT platform is crafted by the community, for the community. We need a leader in Albany who can begin to address the many inequalities and injustices that still exist for LGBT families and individuals. I promise you that nobody will fight harder for our community.
