Meet the Candidates: General Election | Iwen Chu, State Senate District 17

Iwen Chu is running for Senate in District 17 to bring proper representation to southern Brooklyn communities. For the past 10 years, Chu has worked among the community serving the families of southern Brooklyn in different roles and has made the decision to take the next step in her public service journey.

Throughout her work in public service, Chu has found that immigrant communities are underserved and underrepresented. If elected, she intends to be a stronger voice for these communities and ensure they are getting the support they deserve. This includes creating a language support system when she arrives in Albany. Chu has seen firsthand the struggles that members of the immigrant community have gone through while navigating various government services and intends to do everything she can to bridge the gap.
