Michigan’s 13th Congressional District has a Black majority, more than twenty different ethnicities comprise its population, and nearly nine percent of its population is foreign-born. In short, the 13th is home to a beautifully diverse place. Our residents may have different needs and priorities, but at the most basic level, we must protect civil rights and voting rights and ensure a quality education for all. It is also imperative that we work to help create a better pathway toward citizenship for our immigrant communities.

Michigan’s 13th Congressional District is the third poorest in our nation. It is so important that our communities have access to resources that result in a better quality of life. We are championing issues like raising the minimum wage and the Green Jobs Act, preventing insurance redlining, expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit, and protecting low income housing. These are all issues that affect our residents’ financial health and puts them on a path toward stability and prosperity.

Protecting our air and water goes hand in hand with protecting our health, especially from the corporate polluters who place profit over people. Read more about my work on this issue.
