Human Rights, Civic Unity, Diversity

As your city councilor I want to be the go to person for social justice in and out of city hall.

I stand firm in my support of Cambridge’s stance on protecting our members who are under attack by the Trump regime which has attempted to divide our community with an agenda that supports and advances xenophobia.  Cambridge must support all of our people with the clear fact that they are all a part of the fabric that creates our community.  Cambridge is great but is not immune from the policies at the national and state level, we must proactively seek justice for all of our residents.
