1Hood Power is proud to endorse Dr. Yusuf Salaam for the Harlem District 9 seat in the New York City Council race. Dr. Yusuf is a testament to the strength, courage, and tenacity needed from a City Council leader when our nation is headed back to the dangerous terrain of mass incarceration and over-policing.
Dr. Yusuf has the experience, vision, and plan to ensure everyone can succeed and overcome obstacles and challenges in this unprecedented time. Dr. Yusef overcame his personal circumstances due to his wrongful convictions and has endured xenophobic and Islamophobic rhetoric during this race. In a District where people look like and have names that sound like Dr. Yusef’s, there is no question he reflects the community he is being called to serve. His character and steadfast commitment to the people of District 9 are unwavering, and there is no choice but to rank Dr. Yusef as number one on June 27th.
As such, 1Hood Power is proud to endorse Dr. Yusuf Salaam for City Council Harlem District 9 seat for the primary election on June 27th. People can find out their voting poll location, voting hours and more by visiting https://www.vote.nyc/elections.
