    District Leader - Honorable Robert Jackson

    From School Board President, where he walked 150 miles to Albany to bring attention to 

    educational inequality, to serving for 12 years on the City Council, to recent fights for tenants 

    and affordable housing, Robert Jackson takes on the tough fights for New Yorkers again 

    and again… and never backs down.

    President - Johanna Garcia

    President of the CEC and long time UCD member, Johanna has proven time after time,
