Qualifications The last two years have brought a lot of challenges, but also a lot of hope and togetherness throughout the pandemic. As a third generation Washingtonian, a small business owner, community organizer, and a product of Deanwood’s resilience, I remain grateful and blessed to continue to call Deanwood home and fight for a safer community for all. I’m proud to announce my re-election for a 4th term as the Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner for Single Member District 7C04. Continuing to serve the Deanwood community on Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 7C has been one of the greatest honors of my life. As the only Deanwood native in any leadership position throughout our community, I’m deeply proud to be a respected voice for many who call Deanwood home. I stand strong as a true fighter for our neighborhood by working everyday to ensure the needs of our people are met. Since you first elected me 6 years ago, I’ve lead the fight to improve public safety and accountability for community and police violence. We’ve created more affordable housing and protected Deanwood seniors from displacement by going toe-to-toe with slumlords for abuse and exploitation. I’ve been a proud champion for Deanwood small and minority-owned businesses, and fought for more opportunities for Black-owned businesses to thrive up and down Sheriff Road. I’ve advocated for more investments to end our food deserts, and improve our water and traffic infrastructure. That work continues today with shovels in the ground all over the neighborhood. We must take pride in how we showed up for each other during a time of unexpected pain and loss impacting so many of our loved ones. When DC government failed to support families at the start of this pandemic, I did the necessary work of helping to start the East of the River Mutual Aid that supported our village with food deliveries and vital COVID-19 resources throughout our Ward 7 communities. I remember those conversations, through our masks, on your porches and in your living rooms. I’m forever grateful for the reassurances we gave each other to keep pushing through. This challenge created an opportunity for Deanwood to show our leaders, again, what it looks like to keep each other safe. What it truly means to build a future you want your kids to live and thrive in. And that is measured in how we show up and care for one another, in good times and bad. There’s no other leader that has fought for Deanwood like I have. When we still have so many families who are struggling to stay right here in a city that is no longer affordable, especially our seasoned citizens who made DC the great city that it is, there’s still more work to be done. Fighting to uplift our people and doing the tiresome work of creating a safer Deanwood for all requires a commitment to building community with each other. At 36 years old, I’m more energized today than ever before. I'm unapologetic about Deanwood, and I do the work. I ask for your vote on November 8th. #WeKeepDeanwoodSafe

The most important issue facing ANC Single Member District 7C04 is the violence a number of Deanwood residents have experienced over the years, whether it's intra-community or from the police. As the only accessible commissioner in the Deanwood area, I've been on the frontlines testifying before many DC Council public safety hearings and organizing on various blocks to create a safety network that is inclusive and intentional in addressing the root causes of violence. I've been a champion for the full implementation of the Neighborhood Engagement Achieves Results (NEAR) Act, an innovative legislation that reforms criminal justice by focusing on public health approaches to prevent violence and reduce mass incarceration. In 2018, I received the Jerry N. Clark "Civic Superhero" Award from D.C. for Democracy community organization for my advocacy on criminal justice reform.
Social media has been a great tool to reach many different people across my community, especially residents who typically would not come to an ANC meeting or regularly check a newsletter email. You can reach many more people by sharing a post or a tweet with important information that impacts you and your family. But it's also important to meet people where they're at. Deanwood is home to many churches of different denominations where many of our seasoned citizens prefer to organize. Showing up and providing opportunities to have questions answered and engage on the most important topic to my neighbor has been most effective.
