Zellnor for New York

Zellnor Myrie is a Brooklyn native, lawyer, and longtime affordable housing advocate. He's running to represent New York State Senate District 20 in Central Brooklyn.

Zellnor is a real Democrat committed to bringing real change to Albany, on behalf of the Brooklyn community that raised him. He will fight for affordable housing, public education, and immigrant rights - and he won't turn his back on his constituents.

Zellnor derives his inspiration for public service from his mother, who moved from Costa Rica to Brooklyn 40 years ago on the promise of a mattress in a friend’s apartment and a job at a factory. She raised Zellnor in a rent-stabilized apartment in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and he is a proud graduate of Brooklyn Technical High School.

After earning his B.A. and M.A. from Fordham University, Zellnor worked as a Legislative Director in the New York City Council, helping to draft and pass the Tenant Bill of Rights. While at Cornell Law School, he served as student body president, a constitutional law instructor in prison, and a Pro Bono Scholar at Justice 360, a criminal justice reform organization. 

As an attorney, Zellnor has provided over 600 hours of pro bono service to immigrants seeking asylum, victims of police brutality and illegal stop-and-frisks, special education students, and victims of domestic violence. Zellnor has also continued to serve on his Neighborhood Advisory Board and the junior board for the Legal Aid Society, and he is president of his building’s tenants' association.
