Pierina Sanchez is running for re-election for New York City Council District 14

Pierina Sanchez is running for re-election to represent District 14 in the New York City Council. Sanchez is a dedicated advocate for environmental justice in her district. As the Chair of the Housing and Buildings committee, she has worked to eliminate barriers in implementing Local Law 97, which aggressively reduces the emissions produced by the city’s most significant buildings.  She has supported legislation monitoring air pollution levels, addressing inequalities in air quality, and translating content for non-English speaking communities. She has worked to progress toward a goal of zero waste by 2030 through the passage of the Zero Waste Package. If elected to a second term, Sanchez plans to continue supporting legislation to reduce the city’s reliance on fossil fuels, tackle systemic issues in and revitalize NYCHA infrastructure, address fresh food scarcity and sustainability issues, and more.
