U.S. Congress New York 16th District

Jamaal Bowman is running for Congress in New York’s 16th District on an unapologetically bold, progressive agenda. A lifelong educator, he’s fought for students, teachers, and families for over 20 years. Now, he’s hoping to bring his expertise to Washington. Jamaal is running on a platform of Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and a New Deal for Education, which is a plan that radically overhauls and reimagines public education in the United States. He’s been endorsed by dozens of organizations, including Justice Democrats, the Working Families Party, and the New York State Nurses Association, as well as countless public figures, including Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams. Jamaal is running against incumbent Representative Eliot Engel, and the primary election is on June 23.
