Welcome Letter

Dear Friends & Neighbors,

Welcome. It is a great honor to serve as the Assemblymember for District 34, which encompasses the neighborhoods of Corona, East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, and Woodside in Queens. I am proud to be the first person of color, woman of color, and Latina to represent my district, which is one of the most diverse in the world.As a long-term community activist, I plan to advance social justice reforms for all residents of New York State.

I will advocate for budget justice, equitable redistricting, a housing guarantee, single-payer healthcare, police accountability and criminal justice reform, LGBTQIA+ liberation, immigrant justice, environmental justice and to make CUNY free.

The coronavirus pandemic tragically exposed how vulnerable New Yorkers are because we lack universal, high-quality health care for everyone. As a member of the State Assembly, I will advocate to ensure health care is a human right in New York.

It is important that we share reliable and scientifically accurate information. I will work to keep our community informed about how the coronavirus can be prevented, who is at risk, how to report harassment, and how we can help our neighbors at this moment of need.

If you have any questions feel free to contact my district office number (718) 457-0384 or contact me via email at gonzálezrojasj@nyassembly.gov.

In loving solidarity,
Jessica González-Rojas
Assemblymember
34th NY Assembly District
