Shahana Hanif represents the 39th Council District, which includes parts of Kensington, Borough Park, Windsor Terrace, Park Slope, Gowanus, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, and the Columbia Waterfront.

Born and raised in District 39 to Bangladeshi immigrant parents, Shahana has spent her life fighting for working-class families and a City rooted in care, equity, and justice for all. Her diagnosis at 17 with Lupus, an incurable chronic illness, and her subsequent experiences navigating the costly, nebulous healthcare system, and inaccessible City, were the catalysts for her organizing and commitment to public service.


Topics we are hoping to learn about: 
  • Small Class Size bill and how that will be implemented in our District. How can families help with this?
  • How the Education budget cuts from the Mayor's office are being implemented.
  • How to support any issues around neurodivergence and how to support students with learning differences in DOE schools. 
  • And any other issues that we can help raise awareness regarding our neighborhood
