Rubén Díaz Sr. Doesn’t Stand for Your Health or Rights. Don’t Let Him Represent You.

The Bronx has been one of the hardest hit areas by the COVID-19 pandemic, because of historic racism and barriers to health care access for the Latino people who largely live there. In the midst of this public health crisis, on June 23, voters in New York’s 15th Congressional District Democratic primary need to elect a leader who will fight for equality and their basic health care needs and rights. That leader is NOT Rubén Díaz Sr. 

Díaz Sr. is extremely vocal about his opposition to abortion rights and LGBTQ+ New Yorkers. He refused to resign his City Council seat after stating the Council was “controlled by the homosexual community.” He compared abortion to the Holocaust. Díaz Sr. even considers himself in the mold of President Trump, once saying “I do like Donald Trump. He’s like me, making enemies everywhere he goes.” 

It’s clear he doesn’t have his district's best interests or well-being at heart. The Bronx, where the 15th District is located, has the highest abortion rate in the state. Latino voters — who make up the majority of the district — overwhelmingly support the right to access abortion. Latino millenials are more likely to identify as LGBTQ than any other group and the New York City metropolitan area has the largest LGBTQ population in the country, with more than 750,000

Díaz Sr.’s policies are completely disconnected from the priorities of New Yorkers.

Here’s how you can stand against his hateful record:
