i will build in, with, and for community

 

Growing up on the Southside as a mixed-heritage Latina, Arab & Jewish woman, I know the struggle of families dealing with systemic oppression and wealth disparities. We need a representative that has experience looking at these problems through an intersectional lens. We need comprehensive, holistic solutions to build the community that people in district 62B deserve to live in.

Criminal Justice & Drug Policy Reform

Our criminal justice system should not be what ends the hopes and dreams of so many of our young people. We need to legalize Marijuana for all adults, and provide amnesty for those who are incarcerated for selling or possessing it.
