Vision for Queens
Queens is the world in 280 square miles. We are the most diverse community in the country and the world. No other community has more immigrants, more languages spoken, more veterans in the community across all socio-economic backgrounds. We are home to a buddhist temple, a mosque, a cathedral and a synagogue all on one neighborhood block. In a city known for its stark inequalities, we're traditionally known for giving New Yorkers an opportunity to join and build middle class neighborhoods.
Queens represents the future of this nation.
However, it is becoming increasingly difficult to realize our shared prosperity. Marginalized communities are unfairly governed by outdated institutions and inequality, in all of its forms, undermines the integrity of our democracy. It's time to come together and fight for an agenda that embodies our nation's deepest values - values like Inclusivity, Equality, and Democracy.
We need to eliminate barriers that impede progress and reform outdated policies and institutions so we can develop and advance a blueprint to move Queens and our nation forward into the 21st century.
