Debbie Medina "is no stranger to standing up to established powers on explicitly anti-capitalist grounds. She hopes to continue this work as a democratic socialist member of the New York State Senate."

As an advocate for tenants in her native Brooklyn, she has spent her whole career organizing around the issue of affordable housing. Her campaign for New York’s senate has been based on building upon the work she did as an activist; organizing rent strikes and advocating for rent stabilization and rent control. Her opponent in the Democratic primary has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from organizations opposed to tenants’ rights. Medina does not shy away from declaring that capitalism is at the root of the exploitation she fought as an organizer. There is no doubt that she will continue to advance the radical agenda that has driven her throughout her life as a state senator. [3]

As she told The Nation, “This election is just another rent strike.”[4]
