Tiffany Cabán Concedes Queens DA Race

August 6, 2019

Tiffany Cabán came within 60 votes of winning the Queens DA race, running on a platform of decriminalizing and decarcerating nonviolent offenders such as sex workers. She specifically pledged her support to the sex work community. After a lengthy recount process, she conceded on August 6.

Despite her loss, Cabán was able to push sex workers’ message of destigmatizing, decriminalizing and decarcerating. She pushed her opponent Melinda Katz and all Queens residents to rethink how we police our communities.

DSW General Counsel Melissa Broudo and one of our legal consultants, Marguerite Schauer, volunteered their time to oversee the extensive recount process of this extremely close and important election.
