Intersectional and interdisciplinary organizing

I appeal to, represent, and am able to engage in diverse communities. As an immigrant Muslim, I can empathize with the experiences endured by our communities’ most vulnerable members. That’s a crucial qualification in choosing who to represent our city in Congress.

Beyond relating to vulnerable communities, I also connect more easily with them. My identity as an immigrant and artist enables me to connect with people of color and young people even more easily than the professionals, advocates, and public servants with whom I was trained and with whom I work every day.
