What we’re
fighting for



Mondaire is an attorney, nonprofit leader, and activist. He was born and raised in NY-17, where he saw firsthand how working families like his have been shut out of the American Dream by the failure of members of Congress to fight for the people they represent. Mondaire will be a different kind of leader. He’s been fighting his entire life—whether in the courtroom, as an activist, or against the odds. Now he’s ready to take the fight to Washington.

Why I'M Running

I’m running for Congress to fight for bold, progressive policies that will help everyday people and allow all children in New York’s 17th congressional district to dream big like I did.
