Cruz Hosts Comedy Fundraiser In Jackson Heights
Catalina Cruz joined supporters at D’Antigua Lounge on Wednesday night for a fundraiser featuring comics and show writers.
Cruz, who is running for State Assembly in the 39th Assembly District, talked about how her progressive policies in Albany would “[fight] Trump’s agenda with a plan of real action.”
“It was a fantastic night…[my supporters] understand the importance of supporting progressive leadership. Leadership with a vision independent of corporate funding,” Cruz said.
Cruz elaborated that President Donald Trump’s policies affect constituents not just in Jackson Heights, but also across the district.
“This is an immigrant community, this is a community constantly under attack. This is an LBGTQ community, these are women, these are workers that are constantly under attack by the [Trump] administration that has no love for any of us,” she said.
