“I am proud that Int. No. 54, my financial literacy education bill for the Department of Youth and Community Development, has been passed today. This bill is a step in the right direction to end intergenerational poverty to build a more inclusive economy—providing real economic opportunities for all, which requires collaboration and intentionality. The City is overdue in focusing on the fiscal and financial tool kits our youth can utilize to be productive citizens, and my bill will create courses and programs that provide the skill-building our youth needs for economic stability and success.”

“At the conclusion of Joshi’s remarks, Councilmember Farah Louis rose to voice her support for the myriad of ambitions and accomplishments of the Adams Administration that Joshi shared, and encouraged her to continue to do visionary work in Brooklyn. Joshi shared earlier in the morning, that while she hails from Philadelphia, she really thinks, “Brooklyn is the Best”.”

“On Saturday, March 11th, P.S./I.S. 109 hosted an amazing event for the school and surrounding community. It may have started as a rainy Saturday, but it wasn’t long before golden rays of sunshine beamed down on this community educational beacon, both literally and figuratively. The event, co-hosted by State Senator Kevin Parker, Councilwoman Farah Louis and the Brooklyn Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., made sure that fun learning experiences were had by all.


“As a member of the New York City Council, I am proud to see that our city is making progress on our pay equity journey, and we are committed to continuing our efforts to address the pervasive issue of pay disparities, particularly for women of color. Advancing pay equity and diversity in our municipal workforce is a top priority for both the Council and this administration,”


“It’s hard to put into words the outrage and disgust I feel after watching the footage of the fatal beating of Tyre Nichols, carried out by former Memphis Police Officers Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr., and Justin Smith.

With every strike against his body, these officers stripped away Tyre’s dignity, worth, and life force, treating him like an animal.


Standing in solidarity with @nynurses NYSNA as they fight for a #Faircontract & safer staffing conditions. Demanding management prioritize fair wages for NYSNA members that sacrificed their lives to prioritize care for others during a global pandemic. We need a #FairContractNow

“As the chair of the subcommittee on landmarks, is trying to preserve more of the architectural, historical, and cultural significance of our buildings, making sure that we could landmark more areas. Last year, I was able to create a historic district landmarking, a particular block in East Flatbush. I’m seeking to do more of that.”

“I would say District 45 is a mini version of what encompasses the melting pot of New York City.
