Brandon West for City Council, Brooklyn’s 39th District

Brandon West is a community organizer, democratic socialist, and policy nerd running to represent New York City Council District 39 in Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Columbia Waterfront, Gowanus, Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Borough Park and Kensington.

He is fighting for a City that works for the many, not just the few, where working people have power. Together, we can create a New York defined by justice — across race, gender, sexuality and ability.

Brandon needs grassroots support to win, and is refusing all donations from landlords, developers, and big real estate.

The Path to a Just and Equitable New York

Together, we can create a New York defined by justice — across race, gender, sexuality and ability.

Reimagining freedom, safety, and justice

We start by defunding the NYPD, investing in critical social services, and creating a path to ultimately abolishing policing as we know it. This isn’t a socialist pipe dream; it’s an urgent moral necessity.

(Good) Housing is a human right, not a commodity

Whether it’s the Gowanus Rezoning, NYCHA housing, or the eviction crisis, we must make truly affordable housing the headline, not the afterthought.

Investing in the future with educational justice

As we navigate this pandemic, we must ensure that our schools are safe for students and teachers. It’s also imperative that we fully fund them and reverse the racist institutional legacies that have left the NYC school system the most segregated in the nation.
