AMY KHOSHBIN FOR CITY COUNCIL
Amy Khoshbin is running for City Council in District 38 of Brooklyn in 2021. She is committed to creating a platform collectively– one that supports creative impulse and the needs of those that feel unrepresented by the current political system.
I am running for City Council in 2021 in District 38 of Brooklyn, consisting of Sunset Park, Red Hook, Greenwood Heights, and portions of Borough Park, Dyker Heights and Windsor Terrace. This is a real political run that I’m also using as an information-gathering strategy, to demystify the complex structures of government and to empower others to vote, run for office, and get involved in local government. I want to shift our culture towards supporting creativity, intersectionality, and diversity. I want equality in education, affordable housing, and affordable health care and so many other areas of daily life in NYC. I don’t want to live in a society of fear and violence and I see using media and creativity as our tools to affect social change. I am building my platform through the input of the community around me, but I stand behind the list of promises below.
AS CITY COUNCIL MEMBER I PROMISE TO:
Prioritize a culture that supports creativity, diversity, intersectionality- we all start as creative individuals when we're children.
Put Brooklyn citizens before politics and corporate interests.
Ensure Brooklyn is a safe city for immigrants, queer folks, people of color, and women.
Empower Brooklyn citizens with skills to create their own livelihoods and not be completely dependent on a corporate system.
Make accessible arts and sciences for youth and adults.
Dismantle all white supremacist systems.
Value Brooklynites--their skills, talents, and insight--to help strengthen the economic, social, cultural, and environmental state of Brooklyn.
Build a future we want to see, together.
