Five for Friday. There are 24 Fridays between now and the election. Every one I’ll be asking for $5, $50, and $500 donations. Can you chip in $5 or more for my State Representative campaign? I’m running to create greater opportunity in Hamtramck and Detroit. Many hands, lighter load: http://bit.ly/2nyYSW3 #VoteNolish #OpportunityTogether
On Gun Violence Prevention
February 15th: The State of Michigan should pass Extreme Risk Protection Order legislation, providing survivors of domestic violence extra protection against gun violence at the hands of their abusers.
We should implement universal background checks. We should ensure all gun owners have a license and proper training. We should lift the federal ban on gun violence research. We should crack down on illegal online sales. And we should ban assault weapons, including the AR-15 assault-style rifle.
State Representative Robert Wittenberg is actively working to prevent gun violence in Michigan. Founder and Chair of the Michigan Gun Violence Prevention Caucus, he is a champion for the efforts above. I am running to serve by his side and add another voice, and vote, to protect our residents. It’s time. #enough

February 2nd: Today, I am proud to announce my run for State Representative of Michigan’s 4th House District, which includes Hamtramck and parts of Detroit. I am running as a Democrat and I am asking for your support.
District 4 residents deserve good jobs, good schools, quality transportation that connects communities throughout the region, and more. Prioritized funding and resources in these areas will reduce poverty and create shared prosperity. I am running to make it a reality.
My diverse background and dedicated service make me a qualified candidate to serve the cities of Hamtramck and Detroit. I was adopted from Bogotá, naturalized in Detroit, and raised in a multiracial Jewish household in nearby Huntington Woods. I served in AmeriCorps providing Hurricane Katrina disaster relief. I served Detroit’s City Council and Planning & Development Department as an analyst and advocate. Today, I proudly serve in the Michigan Air National Guard and U.S. Air Force.
These experiences taught me to value different people and perspectives. They prepared me to solve problems and persevere. I am confident in my ability to serve as State Representative of Michigan’s 4th House District and I have the courage to fight every day to champion our community’s concerns.
Stand with me to fight for fairness and justice, fight for the marginalized and middle-class. Everyone deserves their place in the sun. It’s time to seize this opportunity together.
