Councilwoman Mercedes Narcisse, R.N. is a dynamic, and caring working mother, proud immigrant, and community advocate who has dedicated her entire adult life to improving the quality of life for all residents of Brooklyn, especially those of her neighbors in the 46th Council District.
Mercedes’s commitment to family and community is based on a strong set of values passed on to her by her immigrant parents. Uniquely qualified and specially prepared, Mercedes has sought to bring all people – regardless of class, racial background, economic status, sexual orientation or social position into what she calls “the Family of People.”
As an advocate for her community, Mercedes has tirelessly worked to empower her neighborhood holistically. In order to excel on all levels, Mercedes works to support all families in our community, helping them understand how local government can work for them, and what they can do together to improve the quality of lives of all.
For decades, much of Mercedes focus has been connecting with different groups of young people, encouraging them to get involved by giving back to her community as young leaders in various aspects. Most recently she has partnered with young people at marches for social justice, census outreach, and food and facemask giveaways during the COVID-19 pandemic.
