Hi! I am excited to be running for State Representative in Michigan House District 6 (Detroit, River Rouge, Ecorse), and I cannot wait to meet you and hear your vision for District 6.
I decided to run for State Representative because I care about Detroit and Michigan. I know I can make a positive impact for our communities. I have worked as an organizer for a decade on civil rights issues and, when Rep. Rashida Tlaib asked me to consider running for this office, I realized that this was an amazing opportunity to make a positive impact on issues that matter most to our neighborhoods. By serving in the legislature, I will utilize my experience and skills as a community organizer, coalition builder, and advocate in order to advance real policy solutions that uphold our shared values of equity, fairness, opportunity and access.
I want a state for my future children that includes excellent schools for all children, safe neighborhoods, a fair justice system, and a strong safety net to make sure everyone has a chance. When elected, I will bring my hard work, passion, and determination to elevate the voices and concerns of residents in District 6, and I am committed to connecting residents to services.
