I am running to represent the 66th District of the North Carolina House of Representatives to give working-class and poor North Carolinians a voice in the General Assembly. For decades, neither of the major corporate parties has spoken to the issues that affect the working class. This campaign is about giving the working class a voice in the legislative process.

Over the past 30 years, both parties have chipped away at our rights in the workplace. Democrats and Republicans both ignore the working class and poor, and they have their reasons: Our legislature is currently occupied by business owners and industry leaders who pass laws based on their own interests and are unwilling or too inept to serve the most marginalized in our communities.

I was a line cook for 13 years and left the restaurant industry after standing up for coworkers by filing a wage-theft complaint against my employer and speaking out against systemic racism in the industry. Doing so led to my being publicly called an "unemployable" "non-conformist," essentially blackballing me from the industry for speaking out. Since leaving the restaurant industry, I have worked for workers’ rights all across the state, mostly organizing fast-food workers as a part of the Fight for $15 movement.

Please support our campaign with your donation and by volunteering.
