Our communities have been fighting for a better future for years.

Whether it’s ending the gun violence that has broken families, removing the lead in our water, or reinvesting in our long-ignored public schools, we, as a community, have the solution. What we need is a leader with the political will to bring our fight to Washington. What we need is a leader with an understanding that policy comes from the ground up, that solutions are rooted in the experiences of those who confront the issues every day. As a gun violence prevention advocate, nonprofit leader, and social innovator, I understand that our communities’ most pressing issues are best solved when a group of courageous leaders come together and fight for bold solutions.
