My name is Shahana Hanif. I wake up every morning fighting against Lupus— an incurable, degenerative, life-threatening disease. I am a Kensington-born organizer running to represent the 39th District in the New York City Council. If elected, I will be both the first Muslim woman and first South Asian person elected in NYC. This race is about the community that raised me and that I fight for every day.
