Crystal Hudson is a public servant and community organizer committed to advancing change for the 35th District in Brooklyn, New York. Crystal's commitment to public service is personal and began when her mother started exhibiting signs of Alzheimer’s disease. As the only child of a single mother, Crystal quickly became the primary caregiver for her mother and experienced first-hand how difficult it is for working families to navigate complex systems to access services and resources needed to keep older New Yorkers safe and healthy at home.
Crystal is running for New York City Council because she believes the most marginalized New Yorkers should have a seat at the governing table. She is running in the 35th District because her family has been in the community for three generations, and she wants to ensure everyone can raise a family, have a good job with good wages, and age safely in place. As the next New York City Council Member representing the neighborhoods of Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and Bed-Stuy, she will fight for truly affordable housing; community safety led by those most impacted by over-policing and harm; a world class education for every child; and a safe, secure place to live. Most of all, Crystal is running to give back to a community that has given her so much.
