Ali Boak is a true leader who knows how to bring people together to address important issues in our community. Ali has demonstrated her vision and commitment to helping victims of human trafficking. She has the experience and dedication we need.”— Hamra Ahmad, Esq.,
Executive Director of Hudson Valley Justice Center
From her work as co-founder of the Westchester County Anti-Trafficking Task Force to her efforts as a member of the United Nations Working Group on Girls, Ali has been a longtime and vocal advocate for the rights of women and girls in New York and around the world. In the State Senate, she will continue this fight and will:
- Safeguard Reproductive Rights: Ali is pro-choice and will strongly advocate for the Passage of the Reproductive Health Act, which would guarantee a woman’s right to control her reproductive health.
- Stand up for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Human Trafficking: As State Senator, Ali will ensure that survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking have the resources and support they need to seek justice and rebuild their lives.
- Support Equal Pay for Equal Work: Women still earn only $0.79 for every dollar earned by men in comparable jobs. This means lower pay, less family income, and more poverty, especially in households headed by a single mother. Ending wage discrimination is not only vital for women and their families, but also for our local economies.
