Lisa Hofflich came to the United States as a refugee when she was three-years old, fleeing the fall of Saigon with her parents. Lisa and her husband have been raising their five, bi-racial, Jewish children in the district for the last 22 years. It was the commitment to community and helping others that brought Lisa's parents to the U.S., and it is commitment to community and her family that drives Lisa's run for New York State Senate today.
“With a conservative majority in the Supreme Court and relentless efforts across the country to roll back women’s rights, we need leaders like Lisa with the experience to get things done and the commitment to stand up. She has been been an outspoken and effective leader for women in New York for over a decade, fighting for issues like a woman’s right to choose, domestic violence, trafficking prevention, and equal pay. That’s why we are proud to endorse her campaign for State Senate,” said Sonia Ossorio, President of NOW NYS.
