May 16, 2022 (New York, NY)–Citizen Action of New York, a member-based progressive organization, has announced its endorsement of Congressman Jamaal Bowman for the 16th Congressional District. 

“I am honored to again be endorsed by Citizen Action of New York,” said Congressman Jamaal Bowman. “When I first ran for Congress, they had my back. Now, as I run for re-election, they continue to support me because we share many of the same values and are fighting for the same causes. We are committed to fighting for justice and equality in New York’s low-income communities and communities of color. I’m grateful for their support and look forward to continuing our fight for justice in Congress.”

“We are proud to endorse Congressman Bowman as he runs for reelection” said Jeremy Ramirez, Citizen Action of New York – NYC Chapter member. “We work tirelessly to get the right candidates, ones who will fight and deliver for their communities, into office. During the 2020 primaries, Bowman ran on the promise to deliver for NY-16’s most vulnerable communities. He ran on a platform that was focused on addressing racial justice, expanding affordable housing, and fighting for environmental justice; issues that would most benefit vulnerable communities across New York. We were proud to endorse him back then. And after watching him keep his promises in office, we’re even prouder to endorse him now.”

“Congressman Bowman has been a champion for education equity, voting rights, and other key progressive issues that matter to Citizen Action of New York members,” said Rebecca Garrard, Legislative Director of Citizen Action of New York. “With so much at stake, we need elected leaders who will take action to defend the rights of the vulnerable, stand against big corporations and lobbyists, and advance an agenda that makes us all freer, safer, healthier, and able to thrive.”

Citizen Action of New York is a 501(c)(4) and a grassroots membership organization taking on big issues that are at the center of transforming society.
