The Office of Assembly Member Zohran Kwame Mamdani is fighting for a future in which each and every New Yorker lives a dignified life and where the distribution of that dignity is not determined by the market. At a time when almost a quarter of our neighbors across Astoria spend half their income on rent, when they breathe the most polluted air in Queens, and where they are profiled at the highest rates of any neighborhood in the borough, we believe that the future we deserve is one where housing, energy, and justice are for the many, not just the few. This vision informs our legislative advocacy and priorities, our constituent services and our community organizing in AD 36.
Our office is broken up into five main branches: constituent services, legislative, organizing, outreach, and communications.
We work one-on-one with constituents who need help accessing services, solving problems related to city or state government, or navigating thorny bureaucratic issues. The focus of this work is on meeting immediate needs. Constituent services are a direct line to understanding the needs and issues that our neighbors face and serves as a foundation for our legislation, our organizing efforts, and understanding how we can leverage our office to meet the needs of our community. In the NYS Assembly, we legislate to bring dignity to all New Yorkers. Our legislative work is an avenue for long-term and wide-spread change. Our office also conducts outreach to inform our neighbors of government programs and social services programs such as the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, the Excluded Workers Fund, and unemployment benefits. Through our communications, we work to demystify thorny govt bureaucracy and to make transparent the work that we do both in Albany and in our district. We organize with our neighbors to bring dignity to all in Astoria, leading efforts such as a district-wide meal distribution during Ramadan and organizing tenants in large buildings in the district.
