New York needs to be inclusive and affordable—for all New Yorkers, not just multi-millionaires and corporations. Our leaders need to act like it. Brian Kavanagh has been working tirelessly to push our state to the forefront of the fight for affordability, to enact protections that keep New Yorkers in their homes, and to end homelessness. Those are some of the reasons he first ran for office. When he and his Democratic colleagues were elected to the Senate majority in 2019, Brian successfully led the fight to enact the toughest tenant protections in the nation, to overhaul enforcement of our laws against housing discrimination, and to improve programs to get homeless families into permanent housing. When our city needed support during the COVID-19 pandemic, Brian delivered by writing and passing the statewide eviction and foreclosure moratorium that kept countless New Yorkers from losing their homes and small businesses, and getting billions of dollars in rent relief for tenants. Brian continues to be the leading advocate in the legislature for big solutions to address the housing affordability, homelessness, and eviction crises.
