Alana is running to bring community-based solutions to Albany on behalf of Lower Manhattan. As a Jewish Puerto Rican vegan, she has a deep love for her community. It is the only place where she has felt truly at home.
Whether it was at city hall or at public rallies, drafting legislation, or taking to the streets to demand racial justice, Alana has worked on both the inside of government as senior legislative counsel to the New York City Council’s criminal justice committee and on the outside of government as a public defender and advocate.
Alana is running to work together with her community to bring economic justice, criminal legal reform, and dignity for public housing residents in Lower Manhattan - because that’s what she’s been doing her whole career.
