Top 3 Priorities

DC Statehood Initiative

DC will be the 51st State as Statehood is the purpose of the US Representative's office for DC. 

Income Inequality

The AMR of the surrounding states affects the residents of DC and causes a housing crisis and higher taxes for us.

Immigration Reform

Immigrants have been the foundation of this country. The unjust travel bans on selected African countries must end.

Washington, DC is the only US territory whose residents pay federal taxes without a representative in Congress. We must work together to achieve DC Statehood for the next generations to come.
