“I am honored to have the support of RWDSU,” Moya said.  “RWDSU is at the forefront of the fight to protect the rights of working men and women across this great state.  Whether they are fighting to ensure that our tax dollars create real living wages jobs, pushing for historic health care legislation in Washington DC, or advocating for the rights of immigrants and immigrant communities; RWDSU’s innovative approach to creating a new economic system for working families offers hope to communities like mine. “

Francisco Moya has lived in Corona, Queens for his entire life and began his career of activism at the age of 15 when he started the Corona Gardens Neighborhood Association.  A graduate of St. John’s University, Francisco has served the community by working for Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, working to expand Elmhurst Hospital and crafting significant legislation while working as the Secretary of the New York State Senate.  Francisco currently chairs Rep. Joe Crowley’s Latino Advisory Committee, and serves the community in a number of other volunteer and leadership roles.
