Committee to Elect Richard Parnell Habersham for Congress

”Do the Right Thing”

We are at a point in our local and national political history where inaction and disengagement are not an option. Today we need to stand up for a future that better reflects the dreams and ambitions of those who laid the groundwork for all of us!
— Richard Parnell Habersham

Join the Movement

Do The Right Thing.

From learning some tough lessons on the streets of Harlem to teaching at state prisons. Richard has always been able to take experiences that he lived through in this district and communicate those experiences to a wider audience. When Richard goes to Washington he will communicate to the entire nation what this districts problems are and make sure that he builds the right coalitions to solve them.

Richard also has worked on public policy issues including rallying support for Mayoral Control of the School, which set the stage for the city’s groundbreaking Universal Pre-K program. Richard currently serves on the board of the Classical Theater of Harlem.

A native New Yorker, Richard Parnell Habersham was born and raised in Harlem. When he was a toddler, he was a frequent guest of Mother Hale at the Hale House In Harlem. Richard attended Riverside Church Nursery School, went to Horace Mann School in the Bronx, Professional Children’s School, and attended LaGuardia High School of Music & Arts and Performing Arts High School, located near Lincoln Center - ultimately graduating from the Dwight School in Manhattan.

Today the choice is no longer whether to take action. Either we take action to save the community now or we lose it entirely

We want to hear from you.

A financial contribution of any amount is meaningful.  It lets me know that I have your support and encourages others with deeper pockets to contribute. But don’t feel as if a financial contribution is all that you can give or all that I’ll need.  I’ll need volunteers, activists, concerned neighbors of all ages to contribute their time and lend their voices to spreading the word about who I am and what this campaign is about. If you are interested in volunteering to work on this campaign, please email me. 

I welcome the opportunity to talk about my campaign and what I believe I can achieve for us if I am elected your next Congressman.
