DEMOCRAT FOR COUNCIL
Amy Perlow is a Hudson Valley native, and Peekskill resident since 2013. She has spent her career actively supporting the fight for school equity, working alongside nonprofits and public schools to increase the percentage of Black, Latinx, and low-income students who graduate prepared for the future. Locally, she is an active member of Peekskill’s NAACP branch and chair of the PNAACP education committee, partnering with other advocates to push for equitable policies and fair funding. Amy is also a founding member of the Peekskill Equitable Housing Coalition, a group committed to halting the gentrification of Peekskill by ensuring the city’s housing policies and agreements are in the best interest of current residents.
Amy’s advocacy efforts have increased her awareness of systemic inequities and the potential for local government to improve our everyday lives. This includes access to quality housing, safer and cleaner streets, environmental protections, pollution reform, and engaging community voices in local decision-making. As a council member, Amy will prioritize fighting for Peekskill residents and holding other elected officials accountable. She strives to develop strong relationships within our community, and believes change comes from partnerships between government, businesses, local groups, and residents. She is committed to understanding the experiences of community members and creating spaces for all to feel seen and heard.
