Queens Mother, Lawyer, Activist and Friend
"I won't stop
fighting for our neighborhood!"
My name is Emily Sharpe and I’ve been living in Sunnyside with my family for close to 25 years. I founded the coalition Stop Sunnyside Yards and now I’m running for City Council to stop the overdevelopment of our district that has resulted in rising rents, gentrification and displacement, and to bring leadership and transparency to our city.
I’ve been fighting for New Yorkers since 2003,
and I have no intention of stopping now!
What's important to you?
Let’s work together and make our community stronger.
