Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, often referred to by her initials, AOC, is an American politician and activist who serves as the U.S. Representative for New York's 14th congressional district. The district includes the eastern part of the Bronx and portions of north-central Queens in New York City.
A congresswoman with grit, grace & grassroots know-how, she turns her passion & knowledge into action for her constituency & beyond! We salute and honor her as a noteworthy highlighted Colored Girl for exemplifying our core values:
IMPACT - Making an impact as a female political leader in NY’s 14th district, and unabashedly speaking up & driving policy change for her community, women and people of color.
WELLNESS - She publically advocates for self-care as a means to restore balance to a stressful and hectic work life.
SISTERHOOD - #squadgoals: she rallies, aligns with and works closely with other women as her political sisters in arms like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, to drive change.
EXPANSION - She readily pushes past antiquated and unfair practices in politics to expand the margins of what’s fair, humane, and inclusive for people of color.
COLLABORATION - Teaming up with other politicians to implement change on issues like easier access to birth control and banning members of Congress from lobbying after they leave office.
