Jabari with Megaphone

State Senator Jabari Brisport is running for re-election in District 25 to continue the fight for working-class people in Albany.

Jabari Brisport is the State Senator for New York’s 25th District. He is a third-generation Caribbean-American Brooklynite and child of an immigrant. His experiences as a queer, Black public school teacher—who has seen his community struggle with displacement, policing, and long-term disinvestment—spurred him to run for State Senate to fight for working-class people. Since he took office in 2021, Jabari has stood up against powerful interests in Albany who only want to protect corporations and the 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.

What We’ve Won

During his first term, Jabari and our movement helped:

  • Ensure billions in new funding for public schools
  • Secure tenant relief funds
  • End the use of long-term solitary confinement
  • Establish a first-of-its-kind excluded workers fund
  • Legalize cannabis
  • Restrict the imprisonment of individuals for parole violations
  • Win the first tax increase on billionaires in over a decade


Jabari rejects ALL corporate donations and developer dollars. His campaign is sustained by grassroots donors like you.
