"I am proud to be the ONLY candidate endorsed by New York's Finest. I will fight for you to make our neighborhoods safe!"
Steven Saperstein was born in Brooklyn, and grew up in the neighborhoods of Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach. Steven and his wife Elina are the proud parents of two daughters Rebecca and Emma.
As a father, husband, educator and community organizer, Steven promotes civic engagement that aids youth and seniors in Southern Brooklyn. Steven is Co-founder of the Shorefront Coalition, where his community efforts include combating the opioid epidemic, improving our quality of life, hosting informational seminars, hosting school supply drives and coordinating food deliveries to support those in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Steven's parents, Brian and Susan, and younger brother, Bruce, are deaf. This had a profound effect on Steven, who became fluent in American Sign Language as a young child in order to communicate and advocate for his family. Steven works as a special educator to empower students with disabilities (and their families), to give them the same opportunities for success that all Americans are entitled.
He attended P.S. 206, P.S. 100, I.S. 303, and Midwood High School, received a B.A. in Metropolitan Studies from New York University, and a J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law. After getting his law degree, he earned an M.A. in Deaf & Hard of Hearing Education from Hunter College (CUNY) and a second M.A. in School Leadership from Touro College.
