Adolfo Abreu

New York City Council, District 14, NE

Adolfo is a 27-year-old organizer and public servant from the northwest Bronx on a lifelong path to build power with community, from the ground up. He is running for City Council in District 14 because he believes in creating a just recovery and an economy that cares for all of us. Adolfo is running to transform the Bronx in co-governance with community members and on the ground stakeholders to fight for a homes guarantee, community control, community health and wellness to guarantee care for all, economic democracy, just and quality education without policed schools, and defunding the police. We require leaders that are prepared to stand strong when the political powers push our backs against the wall—who won’t give up on our dignity and our dreams for political gain. This has been Adolfo’s lifelong commitment—it’s in his bones.

Adolfo brings to the Council race a youthful, passionate and fresh voice rooted in the struggle of Bronxites backed with real organizing, campaign, policy, and governing experience. Adolfo started organizing at age 11 with Sistas & Brothas United, the youth organizing arm of the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition (NWBCCC) and was an active member of the Kingsbridge Armory Redevelopment Alliance, a coalition of community and labor groups that successfully prevented a poverty-wage real estate development project in the 14th council district. Served as Field Director for State Senators Gustavo Rivera and Alessandra Biaggi in campaigns that led to momentous victories. Together, with his community, Adolfo will transform the Bronx and our city—from the ground up.
