A Candidate for the People
Jabari is a candidate fighting for working-class New Yorkers. He will fight to create a New York that works for all of us — not just the wealthy elite.
Jabari was born and raised in Brooklyn — in this community. He has seen things get more and more difficult for him and his neighbors. He knows the political establishment has failed. As a public school teacher, Jabari is part of a movement of working-class New Yorkers fighting for a more just and equitable state. That is why he is backed by the Working Families Party, New York Communities for Change, Democratic Socialists of America, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. They know he is ready to fight and are ready to fight with him — join us.
Jabari is a 3rd-generation Caribbean-American from Prospect Heights. He is from this community and knows its struggles. He has spent his life working with and for his neighbors as both an activist and educator. Whether it is working with his students as a public school teacher, advocating for teachers and students with his union, or organizing his neighbors to fight for progressive legislation, he has always fought for his community. Jabari’s experiences as a queer, black, public school teacher, union member, and child of immigrants, have shaped his drive to make his community and all New York communities more just and equitable. He wants to fight to provide a home for every New Yorker, to guarantee quality healthcare to all, and to empower workers. Jabari is ready to fight for his community in Albany.

Where he stands.
With working-class New Yorkers struggling and our planet under threat, we can’t just talk about progressive change. It’s time for us to act.
Our campaign has a vision for a better New York. We will fight to implement social programs that make our government work for all of us — not just the wealthy few. Jabari has a plan to ensure that working people are prioritized in the state’s COVID-19 relief efforts. He is calling for specific policy changes that will ensure every New Yorker to have stable housing, guarantee universal access to affordable health care, and empower workers to fight for the wages and conditions they deserve. He doesn’t just call ourselves “progressive” — he has the ideas and policy proposals to make real change.
