StreetsPAC is a political action committee dedicated to improving the safety, mobility and livability of one of New York City’s greatest assets: its streets. Our sidewalks, roadways and plazas account for the majority of all public space in the five boroughs, and are a precious resource to be shared and enjoyed by all. 

@howiewolf: Huge night for @streetspac...

We took the political world by storm in New York City's 2013 municipal elections, endorsing 21 candidates in the September primary, 16 of whom were victorious, and an additional six in the general election, five of whom also won. On the ground, we registered and turned out voters, and built grassroots support for Mayor Bill de Blasio's Vision Zero program to eliminate traffic deaths. During the 2017 city election cycle, 16 of the 23 candidates we endorsed won their races.

More recently, in the 2018 general election, our endorsees were a perfect 10 for 10 in races for the New York State Senate and Assembly, and in 2020, all 21 of the candidates we endorsed in the general election won their races, including five new members of the Legislature whom we backed in highly competitive primary races.

Founded by a team of the city’s most committed advocates, StreetsPAC backs candidates who support redesigning city streets to prioritize safety; increased and improved transit access for all New Yorkers; parking and toll reform; more thorough crash investigations; and better, more equitable enforcement of traffic laws, especially through increased deployment of automated speed and red-light cameras.

Please donate today to help us continue this critical work in 2021 and beyond!

StreetsPAC is registered with the New York State Board of Elections and the New York City Campaign Finance Board.
