Rima Begum

Community Organizer

Rima holds a Master’s degree in Social Work from The Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College and was the 2018 Social Worker of Queens Honoree, in recognition of excellent service in the community. Her anti-oppressive work over the years has allowed her to work with different racial, socio-economic, and gender backgrounds, across a range of age groups. Rima believes that policies can also create mass mental health issues across New York City. Her approach to social justice is unique in that she uses her clinical skills to engage folks on an individual level and helps tenants understand how policies affect them.
