Equal justice is something I will continue to fight for. Our criminal justice system is one of the largest entities in perpetuating systemic oppressions, which is why I work towards implementing vast reforms. I will continue to advocate for those who feel the everlasting effects of oppression through our criminal justice system.

In an effort to work towards effective Criminal Justice Reform I have introduced the following bills:

By supporting Michigan’s small businesses, together we can help grow Michigan’s economy and create more jobs around the state. I was once a business owner myself and I know the large impact small businesses have on our economy, such as, how they help to decrease unemployment in our communities. Protecting workers rights is critical, making sure everyone is treated fairly and receives a livable wage is a human right.

In an effort to support Michigan’s small business owners and our workforce I have introduced the following bills:

Michigan has faced Environmental injustice for decades and little has been done about it. From pollution of our water and air to the poisoning of our soil, communities of color are bearing a dual and disproportionate burden of environmental injustice. We have a moral, ethical, and legislative obligation to fix these problems now and I will advocate to reduce the high environmental justice (“EJ”) scores” that plague our state in both urban and rural areas.”

In an effort to work towards Environmental Justice I have introduced the following bill…

Our healthcare system has continuously become provider focused and has lost the patient care and accessibility necessary for effective healthcare. I believe that this must change, and that healthcare should be more accessible to Michiganders. It is time to bring the focus of healthcare back on the patient and put the providers back in the shadows.

In an effort to provide quality healthcare to my constituents and move Michigan closer to providing everyone in our state access to quality healthcare I have introduced the following resolution and bills…

To this day LGBTQX+ members of our community face discrimination, oppression, and isolation from our society. I believe that we should work towards LGBTQX+ inclusion. It is time that we treat the LGBTQX+ community equally under laws including the right to marry and adopt. Acceptance for the LGBTQX+ community is long overdue.

In an effort to work towards equality for the LGBTQX community I have introduced a bill in the Marriage Equality Legislation package…

Mental Health policies are the most personal for me. Having battled mental health concerns within my own family, I know first-hand how the struggles that people who suffer from mental health disorders can affect everyone around them. Ensuring equitable access to mental health services, public education on mental health disorders, and familiarity with mental health resources is critical. This past year and a half has highlighted how quickly an individual’s mental health can be at risk and how easy is it to be confronted with a mental health crisis without any warning or signs. We need to stop whispering about our mental health and start shouting out support and resources to help battle the stigma. Mental health is a critical part of our physical health and should be treated as such.

In an effort to remove the stigma behind mental health disorders and increase access to services and resources I have introduced the following bills…

These past few years have put a spotlight on the historical injustices that have plagued the black community for centuries. Justice and equity for the Black
community is long overdue. Having been under siege by their own nation and government since the inception of this country, systemic oppressions span into every aspect of daily living. Reforms and equitable measures are long overdue. It is time to bring ‘community’ back to
policing.

In an effort to bring justice to those who have experienced police brutality and prevent future police brutality, I have introduced a bill in the…

Quality education is a human right. Historically, Detroit schools have been left to make the best out of a bad situation due to lack of equitable funding for our schools. Our children deserve the same educational opportunities as those who live in more affluent school districts. I aim to ensure our children receive an equitable education, no matter where they live. I will continue to advocate for our students to receive equity in our schools.

In an effort to achieve equity in education I have introduced the following bills…
