District 45

Farah N. Louis

Flatbush, East Flatbush, Midwood, Marine Park, Flatlands, Kensington

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated families and communities in so many ways that we have yet to comprehend fully. We are all in this together, struggling to survive past a health and economic crisis that nearly crippled our city. As New Yorkers, we have always been resilient and recovered from disasters when given a lifeline and a fighting chance. The COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act is the right and humane thing to do to ensure that tenants, homeowners, and small landlords are not displaced from their homes for extraordinary circumstances that are far beyond their control.


One year ago today, I stood in the chambers of City Hall and took the oath of office to become Council Member of the 45th District — the first woman to serve in this capacity. I am in complete awe as I join my colleagues virtually for a Stated Meeting, reminiscent of the exact same order of events that took place on my very first day.
