Issues

Housing

In our district, Jabari rejects the conversion of the Bedford Union Armory to luxury housing. We need 100% Affordable Housing at the site. And put it in a Community Land Trust.

Jabari also calls for an two new revenue streams for affordable and public housing: an anti-speculation tax and a vacancy tax. For more in-depth info, check out the Housing page.

 

Police Reform:  

Jabari supports the Right to Know Act, ending Broken Windows Policing, and the Shut Down Rikers Movement. He also supports greater community control of the police. For more in-depth info, check out the Police Reform page.

 

Economic Justice:

Jabari supports higher taxes on the 1%, with a tax targeting corporations where the CEO makes hundreds of times what their median worker makes. In addition to calling for higher taxes on the wealthy, Jabari will also slash his own salary by $100k and only take the median income of Brooklyn. Jabari also supports worker-coops and increased participatory budgeting. For more in-depth info, check out the Economic Justice Page.

 

Climate Justice: 

Jabari supports the Green New Deal, advocated by the Green Party, which would usher a nationwide transition to 100% renewable energy by 2030. He also supports divesting NYC from fossil fuels and aggressively funding food rescue programs. For more in-depth info, check out the Climate Justice page.

 

Education:

Jabari neither supports charter schools nor high stakes testing. He supports the implementation of more speed safety cameras in school zones.
