I am running for the US House of Representatives in Minnesota's 3rd congressional district because the time to act is now! 

Our community needs someone who will listen, who will represent the values of everyone in the district and who will fight for ALL of our futures. Currently less than 20% of the House of Representatives is comprised of women. That needs to change. Currently the western suburbs of Minnesota has a representative that does not hear our voice. That needs to change. Washington D.C. has politicians that cannot relate to us and that we cannot trust. That needs to change. 

I was born and raised in Minnesota, my Mother was a single parent the majority of my childhood. Despite the challenges we endured, I wouldn't change a second of my upbringing because it has helped me to become the woman I am today. I am a first generation college student; my bachelors and masters degrees are from the University of Minnesota. For more than a decade, I've worked as a social worker, community builder and leader. In these roles I've helped to transform passion into meaningful action to create lasting change. I'm ready do to that in Washington. As one of the co-founders and leaders from the Women's March Minnesota, I had the extreme pleasure of helping to organize the largest mobilization of Minnesotans in our state's history. On January 21st, as I lead many of those 100,000 marchers down John Ireland Boulevard, I vividly remember the crowd chanting, "Our democracy is under attack. What do we do?... Stand up, fight back!". 

Join me in the fight for affordable health care for all, family focused policies, fair wages, women's rights, rights for those with disabilities, immigrant rights, environmental justice, education, LGBTQIA rights and civil rights. Join me in the fight for honest politicians. Join me in the fight for our future. 

The seated Congressman has deep pockets and I cannot do this without your help. I vow to be fiscally responsible with your hard-earned dollars on the campaign trail and in office!  Please donate today, it would be greatly appreciated and will go a long way in our fight for a better tomorrow!
