Question: How can one congressional district in New York City
have so many and such diverse communities in its district?
Answers: The 10th district is (1) shaped like a sideways "V";
(2) very large; and (3) the result of bizarre gerrymandering!

Momentum Builds As Some Progressive Organizations
Endorse the Candidacy of Hakeem Jeffries for
New York State Assembly in Brooklyn
Brooklyn, NY – June 22, 2006 – People for Jeffries, the campaign committee for Hakeem S. Jeffries, a progressive attorney and community activist from Brooklyn, today announced that three community organizations have endorsed their candidate for State Assembly.
The Progressive Association for Political Action (PAPA), the Working Families Party (of North Brooklyn) and the citywide PRIDE Democrats (Pride Rainbow Independent Democrats Etc.) have all thrown their support behind Jeffries, touting his longtime achievements both in the community and the courtroom as reasons to back the First Amendment attorney, who is running for the 57th district seat that is being vacated by the incumbent. PRIDE Dems has been the sole consistent endorser of Mr. Jeffries since his first Assembly run in 2000. It is the political arm of the STONEWALL Veterans' Association (of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion) civil rights group.
“In order to strengthen the public school system, build affordable housing and promote neighborhood-friendly economic development, we must move to a political dynamic that is progressive, principled and public service-oriented”, said Jeffries. “That is why the endorsement of these forward-thinking organizations is so important to the success of my campaign.”
These endorsements come on the heels of winning the support of Communication Workers of America (CWA) District 1 and SEIU Local 32-BJ. Jeffries will also have the Working Families Party ballot line in the November general election.
Hakeem Jeffries was born at Fort Greene’s Brooklyn Hospital. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in political science from the State University of New York at Binghamton, a Master’s Degree in public policy from Georgetown University in Virginia and graduated magna cum laude from New York University Law School. Jeffries grew up in Crown Heights and now lives with his wife, Kennisandra, and their two young sons, Jeremiah and Joshua, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
The 57th Assembly District includes the neighborhoods of Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights and some parts of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn.
