Pierina fights for the Bronx

Pierina fights for the Bronx

Pierina is an Afro-Dominicana, daughter of immigrants, and lifelong Bronxite, born in University Heights and raised in Kingsbridge. Pierina grew up watching the hard work of her elders – selling oranges, driving taxis, cleaning buildings and schools – to ensure her generation had a chance at higher education and opportunity.

From the White House to the community board, and from advocacy to City Hall – Pierina has been and will continue to be a fighter for immigrant families, racial justice, affordable housing and good jobs.

Why she's running

Our community, city and country are at a critical moment in the fight for social justice, and Pierina believes in our community’s capacity to get through the most difficult of challenges and still rise.

Pierina is running to fight for a just recovery from COVID-19 that puts racial and economic justice at the center, and to demand the resources we deserve to be healthy and thrive.
