MADE IN BROOKLYN
Monae is a fourth-generation Brooklynite who has lived in the Bedford Stuyvesant area for the last 22 years. Politically activated at 11-years-old during the 2000 presidential election debacle, she has always been interested in good government and fair politics.
Why Monae is Running
Monae is running to be the change she wants to see in the Brooklyn Democratic Party. She wants an accountable, transparent and proactive Party. A Party that organizes around issues we care about and seeks to empower our community instead of themselves.
Why Your Vote Counts
Inclusion- Everyone in our community who wants to participate in the democratic process should be able to. We need to eliminate barriers to participation in the Democratic party.
Transparency- A transparent party is a healthy party. The Brooklyn Democratic Party has recently moved in the wrong direction by forbidding public recordings of executive meetings. All Party business should be public as the business of the Party impacts every registered Democrat in Brooklyn.
Improved Community Engagement- The people of Bed Stuy and Northern Crown Heights should be actively engaged and encouraged to participate in democratic processes, and consulted about what goes on politically in our community.
