Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Congress plans a campaign launch rally in March.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez officially announces that she will seek another term in Congress to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for Congress, the campaign, will formally launch with a kickoff rally that will be hosted in March—details to come. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez released the following statement:

“I’m so proud of the work we have accomplished for our communities in The Bronx and Queens over my past term in Congress. We’ve brought in historic investments directly to the residents of the NY-14 from creating green energy job training programs in Throggs Neck and reducing air pollution in Co-op City, to improving street safety of Astoria Boulevard and Westchester Square, and expanding pre-K programming in Corona. These projects, paired with our tireless fight in Washington to take on special interests and support working families, have shown what the possibilities of good governance can look like.

“My campaign is part of a movement of everyday working people committed to building a better future for The Bronx and Queens. We are in a pivotal moment with so much at stake, and now is not the time to be complacent. We must fight for affordable housing, Medicare for All, reproductive freedom, a bilateral ceasefire in the Middle East, a Green New Deal, millions of good union jobs, and, most importantly, a New York where everyone can thrive—not just the 1%. That’s why I’m running for re-election.

It is a privilege to represent the people of the NY-14 without taking a dime in corporate money. This campaign is 100% people-powered, and is part of a grassroots movement that is already winning a better future. Now it’s time to fight for more.”
