Marcela Mitaynes

Marcela for NY Donate

Marcela is running to represent New York Assembly District 51 because this is her home, our home, and we’re not going anywhere.


Marcela Mitaynes was raised in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. She is now raising her own family in that same vibrant, beautiful community. Marcela was evicted from her rent stabilized apartment of 30 years, and began her life’s work of empowering her neighbors to know their rights. Marcela was instrumental in the passage of the historic Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019. Marcela deeply believes that housing is about so much more than the monthly rent: it is a basic human right. And it is about putting down strong roots and growing resilient communities in the face of mounting extremism.
