Women for Ischia Bravo Fundraiser Thursday Feb. 25th


   In early February, former Executive Director of the Bronx County Democratic Committee Ischia Bravo announced her bid to represent the 78th Assembly District of The Bronx.  A lifelong Bronx resident who grew up in public housing, Ms. Bravo was instrumental in creating opportunities for talented and devoted citizens to serve The Bronx proudly as elected officials.

Now, Ms. Bravo looks to serve as an example for women across the borough to pursue their goals, as she mounts a campaign to represent the constituents of the 78th Assembly District of the Bronx, covering the areas of Kingsbridge, Belmont, Fordham and Bedford Park.

On Feb 25th, 2016 Ms. Bravo will bring together hip-hop pioneer and radio personality Angie Martinez with local leaders and residents to mobilize and empower women of color at Beso Lounge in the Bronx. Ms. Bravo commends Angie on her accomplishments and is honored to have the support of women such as Ms. Martinez who have defied obstacles to shatter the glass ceiling of opportunity.

“Angie Martinez has been at the forefront of entertainment and social activism, inspiring countless young women to pursue careers in entertainment, music and the arts,’ says Ms. Bravo. “Trailblazers such as Ms. Martinez consistently defy barriers to success, and serve as inspiration for our young girls, wives, mothers and daughters to accomplish goals both large and small.”

Ms. Bravo notes that in the 78th Assembly District, female voters outnumber male voters 6-1. With this voting power, she urges women to take a more active political and social stance.  “We must exercise our political power to enact the changes we want to see - not only for women’s rights, but for issues concerning our youth, seniors, and housing.” says Ms. Bravo.

A mother of two, Ms. Bravo states that she is ready to shape an atmosphere where other young women are inspired to pursue their goals, and is ready to represent her community with “pride and dignity” at home and in Albany. 

“I am proud that The Bronx will help shape the path for my two young boys, and look I forward to taking advantage of opportunities to be a part of the new wave of progress of this great borough.” said Ms. Bravo. “From music to social activism, from entertainment to politics - let’s give all little girls from the Bronx an incentive to be the voices they want to hear!”
