Ana María Archila

New York

(Lieutenant Governor)

Candidate Spotlight:

  • Ana María Archila is a queer Colombian-American immigrant with 20 years of progressive grassroots organizing experience.
  • Archila is the co-founder and former co-director of Make the Road New York and the former co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy.
  • She supported efforts to win the historic $2.1 billion Excluded Workers Fund in 2021 to provide economic relief to Black, brown, and immigrant workers in New York.
  • She also helped steer the campaign to pass the New York Dream Act.
  • For Archila, immigrant justice is intersectional. She’s maybe most well-known nationally for an iconic elevator confrontation with then-Senator Jeff Flake over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. And out of the spotlight she has long fought for abortion, housing, education, and climate justice.
  • We need more badass elected officials like Ana María Archila who will listen to our communities.
