Health Care, Education, and Housing.

As a Type 1 diabetic and leader in insulin organizing, I worked to pass the Alec Smith Emergency Insulin Act at the Minnesota State Capitol in April 2020. I will continue to advocate for an ethical health care system that puts people before profits.

Nationally, I am recognized for my work educating incarcerated youth in Minnesota. In office, I will champion a public education system that allows all communities to thrive.

As a lifelong resident of the West Side, I have seen firsthand the damage caused by inflated housing costs on the health of residents. At the Capitol, I will push for investments and policies to protect renters and working class families.
I will advocate for automatic voter registration efforts and fully-funding our election system to better support communities of color, especially across lines of culture and language. The difficulty of casting a ballot is still largely determined by zip code, and we need to instead be building a system of equal access and opportunity.
We must be looking at every single policy through a lens of racial equity. Our braided systems of health care, education, and housing are built on histories that give context to today's disparities. I also am running to see the budgets and advocate that our communities receive the funding we need and deserve. To name a couple policies specifically, I will be uplifting the Increase Teachers of Color Act and the Minnesota Health Plan.
I am a small business owner and an artist. At the Capitol, I will push for policy that develops an inclusive, creative, and regenerative economy. These efforts include passing price gouging legislation, investing in green infrastructure, supporting organized labor and artistic initiatives, and advocating for local appropriations including funding for a West Side Latinx Museum of Arts.
I fully support background check requirements without loopholes and red flag legislation. We must also invest in social support structures so that no one in our community is driven to acts of hate and violence.
