jean folkesTitle: Community Advocate, Housing, and Mental Health;

Interests: Housing, Mental Health.

I have two things that are of utmost importance to me. Mental Health, I am in the fight to end the stigma and bring awareness, one in four Americans experience mental illness each year, yet family and individuals suffer in silence. Affiliation: NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Affordable Housing. NYC is in the worst affordability crisis the city has ever seen. Speculation in affordable housing thrives in an environment with weak rent laws and these laws need to be strengthened.

Affiliations: Flatbush Tenants Association (FTC), Real Rent Reform (R3). National Association for Mental Illness (NAMI)
