Shahana Hanif

Shahana Hanif is running to represent District 39 in the City Council

As the Director of Organizing and Community Engagement for the New York City Council, she has gained important experience related to how local government operates. As the leader of District 39’s Participatory Budget, she advocated for funding towards projects that create more equitable, green, open, and accessible built environments: from green roofs at the Windsor Terrace, Carroll Gardens, and Borough Park libraries, to better infrastructure in Prospect Park and playgrounds across the district. If elected, Hanif will be a strong proponent of a Green New Deal centered around environmental justice for the residents of District 39.
