Council Member Eric Dinowitz was born and raised in the Northwest Bronx, and is raising his family in the district he grew up in. Eric is a community activist, former special education teacher and Chapter Leader for the United Federation of Teachers and former Aging Chair of Bronx Community Board 8.
Eric attended Bronx’s public schools, and has a personal investment in the success of our students. As a special education teacher for thirteen years in our community, he taught and counseled the students who needed the most support. Council Member Dinowitz made sure each of them had a fair shot to succeed and gave them the tools that they needed to do it.
As a Democratic District Leader, Council Member Dinowitz worked to make voting easier and more accessible. He also fought for transit accessibility by joining together a coalition of local advocates and elected officials to bring an elevator to the Mosholu Avenue subway stop. He looked out for seniors as Chair of the Aging Committee on Bronx Community Board 8, and spent hundreds of hours getting critical services to our older adults throughout the pandemic.
