Women, children, people of color, LGBTQIA+, elderly, economically disadvantaged, people living with HIV, uninsured and disabled people, deserve quality healthcare, affordable housing and equity in education.

Housing- When it comes to housing, she wants to continue creating affordable housing, lower evictions and increase home ownership.
Education- Chantel wants to make sure the neediest school districts receive the funding owed to them by New York State and increase the TAP grant that allows New Yorkers to attend college. She wants to increase education in the RBCs; Real Estate, Business, Credit & Stocks
