Fighting for those who fight for us.

Carolyn has always demanded that our government honor the debt it owes those who rush into danger to defend our nation.

  • Fighting to expose the truth for veterans who worked at toxic burn pits, who are now suffering from cancers and other diseases.

  • Championing legislation that would allow veterans to get VA-backed loans for co-ops, which are currently excluded (and a huge part of NY-12’s housing stock).

  • After Hurricane Sandy, Carolyn supported a relief package that included $207 million in federal relief aid to rebuild the Manhattan VA Hospital after the destruction of clinics.

  • She's worked to pass bills that increase veteran benefits, healthcare, and access to technology.

  • An outspoken sponsor of the 2010 bill that repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
