Newsletter from Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez

Thank you for subscribing to my newsletter! This bi-weekly update serves as my way of letting my community know what is going on in the neighborhood. Read for updates of local events, community meetings, and legislation.

With the close of budget, the State Legislature went on a two week hiatus. I took advantage of the time away from Albany to visit events and community meeetings in the district. It is important to not forget the people whom we represent, and although I may seem far away during session days, know that I am always eager to get back to the grassroots of why I fell in love with the job. In fact, this coming Tuesday, April 30th, marks my 1 year anniversary since being sworn into the Assembly. Back then, you put your confidence in me to represent and listen. Thankfully, that confidence has not waned. There is always more work to be done, but be sure that I am always ready to face whatever challenges we may see as a community.

Thank you for an amazing first year in office!

Assemblywoman Fernandez stood with Representative Carolyn B. Maloney against female genital mutilation.

“Female Genital mutilation is a disgusting way to de-humanize and subject woman to pain and humiliation,” said Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez. “I am deeply disturbed to see the Department of Justice not challenge the decision a Michigan Federal district court made, which legitimizes female genital mutilation at a federal level. This is frustrating and just another example of how this current administration does not value woman and are seeking to directly undermine their humanity.”


Assemblywoman Fernandez attended the Morris Park Community Association to listen to the issues within the community.

Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez spoke at a racism town hall hosted by CIMS High School.

“Racism has no place in our society. But we must acknowledge, address, and mend the history of racism and race based disenfranchisement of our communities that has left generation long scars.”


Assemblywoman Fernandez discussed her legislation, (A2761) which establishes a Latina Suicide Task Force, with Univision. Latinas are the most susceptible to depression, suicide, and self-harm. It is important that we identify whythese issues persist in such a widespread manner and what measures we can take to help our constituents.
