I’m humbled and pleased to have the endorsement of Sunrise DC. The Sunrise Movement, a youth-led climate activist group, has quickly established itself as an influential force, advocating for environmental, racial, and housing justice.
I’ve long stood with community organizers fighting for the systemic transformation we need. It’s time we put people at the center of solutions to create holistic sustainability for the health of communities and our planet. My climate health platform explains my approach to this urgent priority. As your Ward 5 Councilmember, I will put people first while working for policies and solutions to create a healthy planet — with a livable climate, clean air, and safe water. These are the values that I share with Sunrise DC.
Join us in our efforts to protect our communities and our climate by fighting for environmental justice. The status quo isn’t working. It’s time for bold, new leadership. I’m grateful for Sunrise DC’s support and look forward to bringing their ideas with me to the Wilson Building.
