InfoGrace Meng is proud to have been elected to the New York State Assembly on the same historic day that President Barack Obama was. Her commitment to diversity and demand for change and excellence in government propelled her to victory. She is the youngest Asian-American ever elected to the New York State Legislature, and currently the only Asian-American serving in the entire legislature. A dedicated public interest attorney and a grassroots political activist, Grace’s top priorities are making sure that all children are healthy and are able to receive a quality education, improving the quality of life for senior citizens, and helping small business owners achieve their American dream.

During her first few months in office, Assemblywoman Meng has emerged as a fighter for working families, children and senior citizens. She has already introduced over 35 bills in her first legislative session. She authored and sponsored two pieces of landmark legislation. Her first bill, already signed into law by the Governor, extended unemployment coverage to 56,000 New Yorkers during these tough economic times. She also sponsored legislation signed into law to provide new incentives for property owners to commit to providing affordable housing. She has also been able to work with the Governor and the congressional delegation to secure millions of dollars in stimulus money for Flushing for affordable housing, youth employment, and transportation infrastructure. Her office has also helped thousands of constituents get much needed money from EITC and HEAP programs – directly putting money back into the pockets of working families and senior citizens.

Grace graduated from Stuyvesant High School, has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and a juris doctorate from Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. Her legal career has included being a Partner at Yoon and Kim, LLP and volunteering as a pro bono attorney for Sanctuary for Families, a domestic violence legal service provider in New York City. Committed to developing the next generation of leaders, Grace was the founder of a volunteer organization – F.O.C.U.S. (Friends of the Community Unite & Serve) Community Access Center – and president of the Queens Chinese Women’s Association. She has also served on the boards of Flushing Hospital Medical Center, the American Red Cross, Flushing Savings Bank, Flushing YMCA, and was the former chairperson of the New York City’s Department of Youth and Community Development’s Neighborhood Advisory Board 7. She currently resides in Flushing with her husband, Wayne, son, Tyler, and dog, Bounce.
