Brooklyn, New York (October 20, 2020) – Today it was announced that the women’s membership group, 21 in ’21, has officially endorsed Nikki Lucas, candidate for New York City Council in Brooklyn’s 42nd District, covering East New York as well as parts of Brownsville, Canarsie, East Flatbush and Remsen.
21 in ’21 is a grassroots army of women and allies working to achieve full representation on the NYC Council by helping women win in 2021. The organization just released the list of the 32 women they will be supporting in the 2021 City Council races throughout New York City.
“I am very excited and humbled to have the support of 21 in ’21”, stated Lucas. “I love what 21 in ’21 is doing in New York City. Women make up the majority of voters in New York City, but the number of women elected officials has been decreasing. 21 in ’21 understands the need and importance for women to be properly represented in the City Council, and I am happy to be a part of that movement.”
“This was a long and thoughtful process, and all of the women who applied, with their bold leadership skills and their proven advocacy track records, certainly did not make our endorsement decisions easy,” said 21 in ’21 Executive Board Chair Amelia Adams. “We know having too many strong, qualified applicants is a good problem to have, and we are confident in our slate’s ability to transform New York.”
“Our slate of women candidates for City Council are diverse across the full spectrum of identities,” said 21 in ’21 Executive Board Vice Chair Yvette Buckner. “We look forward to our endorsees bringing their life experiences, and the life experiences of their community members, with them to City Hall as we continue to fight for a more representative and equitable New York.”
