For nearly two decades, Congresswoman Yvette Clarke has devoted her life to being a public servant – a vocal advocate for the populations who have long been overlooked and underserved. Brooklyn born and bred, she is the daughter of Jamaican immigrants who instilled in her the values of relentless excellence, fearless advocacy and a passion for justice for all people, regardless of their zip-code, race, gender or sexual orientation. 

Currently living in the same house where she grew up, the Congresswoman not only understands the issues facing everyday Brooklynites but also how policymaking works on both a local and national level, along with how to get things accomplished on Capitol Hill.
