State Senator Jabari Brisport is running for re-election in District 25 to continue the fight for working-class New Yorkers.
Jabari Brisport is the State Senator for New York’s 25th District. He is a third-generation Caribbean-American Brooklynite and former public school teacher. Since he took office in 2021, Jabari has stood up against powerful interests who only want to protect corporations and the ultra-wealthy. He’s fought for the funding, services, and policies that New Yorkers need to survive and thrive.
Jabari is running for re-election because he knows that we don’t have to accept bread crumbs and inaction from our government. Real change is possible when we demand that big issues are met with big solutions. When we fight, we win.

- Establish a first-of-its-kind excluded workers fund
- End the use of long-term solitary confinement
- Legalize cannabis
- Restrict the imprisonment of individuals for parole violations
