A nurse fighting for working-class New Yorkers.

Phara Souffrant Forrest is a nurse, tenant activist, and life-long resident of Crown Heights representing central Brooklyn in the New York State Assembly since 2021. She’s tired of luxury development, high rents, police brutality, and an inhumane healthcare system. That’s why she’s running for reelection to represent the 57th Assembly District, including Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, and parts of Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant. In office, she has passed laws to increase parole justice and to raise taxes on the wealthy in support of greater social services and has fought for comprehensive healthcare for all New Yorkers and greater protections for workers, families and tenants.
