Yuh-Line Niou Endorsed By Bernie Sanders for Re-Election in NY’s State Assembly
New York State Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou (65th District) has earned another major endorsement for her re-election, with Senator Bernie Sanders recently expressing his support on Twitter.
In his post, the former Democratic presidential candidate noted Yuh-Line’s contributions to the communities that she represents:
“@yuhline is a state representative in New York who came to the U.S. as an infant when her parents emigrated from Taiwan. With a career built on advocacy and community organizing, she is a lifelong voice for low-income people, people of color, and immigrants.”

Niou is running for re-election as a member of the New York State Assembly representing Chinatown, the Financial District, Battery Park City and the Lower East Side.
In her current term, Niou has worked on improving the financial protections of consumers; securing funding for New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) repairs, and supporting tenants’ rights advocates for better housing regulations.
Back in September, Niou expressed her support for Warren during the Democratic presidential primaries’ campaign season.
Alongside Warren, Niou also recognized Sanders as a friend and ally in Congress.
I love both @ewarren and @BernieSanders ! They are friends and allies in the halls of Congress! I’m honestly just thrilled that we have these two being the top considerations of our party. It makes me excited!
Aside from Niou, Sanders also endorsed a number of Democratic bets, including New York State Assemblymember Ron Kim, who represents the 40th District.

Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
