Caban supporters and endorsers

The La Boom Nightclub in Woodside, Queens, was packed wall to wall with hundreds of supporters. People were chanting “Sí se Puede” and “Black and brown lives matter.” That was the scene at approximately 11:15 pm June 25 2019 when Tiffany Caban declared herself the winner in the Democratic primary for district attorney.

Tiffany Caban was a virtually unknown public defender until February 2019. Cabán built a grassroots campaign that brought in community organizations, such as Make The Road, and political groups, including the Working Families Party, Citizen Action, and the Democratic Socialists of America.

Cabán was endorsed by Larry Krasner, the District Attorney from Philadelphia who led the way in the movement for transformative justice. Her national endorsers included Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as well as Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Local endorsers included: NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer; NYS Senators Jessica Ramos, James Sanders, Julia Salazar, and Michael Gianaris; NYS Assemblymember Ron Kim; and NYC council members Jimmy Van Bramer and Antonio Reynoso.

Actress Susan Sarandon tweeted this morning; “@CabánForQueens victory over the ‘machine’ in Queens makes me proud to be from Jackson Heights and shows once again that a people’s movement can bring real change, real justice.”[1]

Radical aide

April 2015 the Metropolitan Council on Housing, one of New York’s leading voices for tenants and tenant rights, announced that it had hired Ava Farkas as its new executive director. She replaces Jaron Benjamin, who left last November to work at the HIV/AIDS advocacy group Housing Works.

Farkas brings a well-established history of organizing on behalf of working people and progressive causes, having organized for the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition on the Kingsbridge Armory redevelopment; the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union’s living-wage campaign; the South Brooklyn Accountable Development Initiative, and most recently serving as chief of staff for City Councilmember Antonio Reynoso of Brooklyn.
