Together, we can build a Minnesota where everyone has opportunities, is treated with respect, and feels welcome.
It has been a great honor to serve my community in New Brighton, Columbia Heights, and St. Anthony as your State Representative for House District 39B. This past session, I authored nearly thirty bills signed into law – each of which ensured that Minnesota is now a more just, equitable, and welcoming state for generations to come. I am running for re-election to continue to fight for an improved justice system, a clean environment, safer working conditions for Minnesotans, and so much more.
I am a mom, an immigration lawyer, and an advocate for civil rights. As a parent, I am focused on fighting for the high-quality schools, universal healthcare, and environmental protections needed to provide a bright future for all of Minnesota’s children. As a defender of civil rights, I am passionate about ensuring racial justice, freedom of speech, and the protection of privacy. And as an immigration lawyer, I want to ensure that Minnesota is welcoming to people of all backgrounds and experiences. To me, “Minnesota-nice” means that our state is a place of opportunity for all.
Together, through coalition-building and community partnerships, we advanced laws that have a concrete, measurable impact on our district and our state. In the 2023 legislative session, we took historic strides towards fully funding our public schools, delivered the biggest tax cut in state history, made major investments in infrastructure, put Minnesota on a path to clean energy by 2040, and so much more.
I am running for reelection to continue this work to make our state the best place to raise a family — but I need your help to do it. Will you join the fight?
