A NOTE FROM STU
I've seen firsthand how our most vulnerable struggle to have their needs met. I also run free legal clinics at Woodhull Hospital and other health care centers in the community. I was born in New York and was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 6. My personal experience, and my family’s experience with chronic illness, is why I've devoted my career to fighting for my community. I know the struggles that everyday New Yorkers face when trying to get the healthcare we need for ourselves and our families.
Last year I started the first free legal program in New York City for the families of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s at public hospitals and community health centers. I help seniors continue to live safely at home and get family caretakers the relief they need.
Working directly with the community means the problems New Yorkers face are not an abstraction to me: every single day I see how working people struggle because our city is not equipped to help them.
I'm running for City Council to ensure that our most vulnerable have access to the services they need, and especially in this time of crisis, that every New Yorker has the resources to thrive.
