Meet Jeremiah Frei-Pearson

Jeremiah is the candidate for State Assembly best positioned to deliver real results for our district.

A record of local leadership

Jeremiah Frei-Pearson has called every corner of Northern Westchester home. He graduated from John Jay High School in Lewisboro-Katonah, near where his family still lives. He currently lives in White Plains where he has served as a Democratic District Leader for almost a decade.

In addition to founding and helping run a cutting-edge progressive law firm that employs more than a dozen people right here in the 93rd Assembly District, Jeremiah is an active community leader and volunteer. He is the chair of the White Plains Sustainability Committee, where he has helped work on everything from increasing the use of solar and geothermal energy, increasing the use of electric vehicles and reducing plastic waste. He is also a member of, and the past Chair of, the Mayor’s Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities, where, among other things, he and the committee ensured that the City would repair damaged curb cuts and sidewalks, passed legislation for accessible taxicabs, work with Habitat for Humanity to make Trinity United Church accessible, and made the Common Council Chamber more accessible to people with disabilities.

An effective advocate for progressive change

Jeremiah Frei-Pearson has spent his professional life taking on powerful interests on behalf of people who are being treated unfairly. As a young attorney working for Children’s Rights, he represented thousands of children in foster care and used the courts to successfully reform broken government agencies on behalf of at-risk children. He worked tirelessly to help pass Marriage Equality in New York, was honored by the NYC Bar Association with their Thurgood Marshall Award for his work on death penalty cases, and honored by the NYC Council for his work representing at-risk children.

Now, he helps run a cutting-edge progressive legal firm based right here in our district. They fought the Trump administration when it started putting kids in cages at the Mexican border. They stood up to nursing home owners that put profits over people and left residents in unsafe environments – and now Jeremiah is working with the State Senate to reform our broken system of elderly care. And they stood up for low-wage workers who were being abused and underpaid by major corporations. That’s the kind of relentless, effective leader we need fighting for us in Albany.
