Meet Lattina Brown

Lattina Doran Brown, born November 18th 1984, in Harlem, New York, is running for City Council District 17. Lattina hopes to bring necessary change to the Bronx. Her focus is addressing  Affordable Housing, Gun and Gang Violence, Immigration, Education, Women’s Rights and bringing communities of color together.

At the age of 6 Lattina’s parents separated, leaving her to live in a single parent household with her father Doran Brown. This experience, along with her growing up in a caribbean household, taught Lattina many life lessons at a young age. Independence being the foundation of all the many lessons learned. Her father and her had an amazing bond, a bond that seemed almost unbreakable. However, in 2010 that bond was severed as Doran Brown passed away to stage 4 lung cancer, six weeks after Lattina gave birth to her daughter. A tragic moment that helped shape Lattina for the rest of her life.

In 2018 Lattina graduated with her Bachelors in Business Administration from the CUNY School of Professional Studies. During this time her two cousins Tevon Young and Shondel Martin helped support Lattina to ensure her success in her educational adventures. In 2019 Lattina obtained her Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the Touro College Summa Cum Laude and in June 2020 She will take her entrance exam for law school. She currently work for the City Council- Office of General Counsel and have experience in the the non-profit organization field.

In 2011 Lattina moved to the Bronx, New York. At the time the building in which she lived was taken over by new management. A year after living within her building, Lattina witnessed an increase of drug dealings, prostitution, tenants being assaulted and lack of care in the building she resided in. An increase in mold, water damage, chipping paint, the lack of garbage removal, and inoperable elevators for those who needed them all lead to Lattina to take action to make the changes necessary to improve conditions within the building.

Lattina’s passion to continually combat the injustice within her community has led her to be supported by many of the Bronx’s residents. From advocating for tenant’s rights, to solving the many issues relating to drug dealing, gang activity, and human trafficking within her community, Lattina Brown is working diligently to bring the change needed to make the Bronx safe and sustainable for all of it’s many residents. She has teamed up with the 41st precinct and the Legal Aid Society to bring much needed change to her community already. Together with your help she can bring the same meaningful change to the 17th district in the Bronx.
