Countless Americans face systemic issues that can and must be addressed through grassroots political action. Growing up in California, I have seen rampant corruption in our political system ensure that the working class continues to be unrepresented within our government. I believe that my insight as an Indian American, a gay American, and a young member of the Democratic Party has enabled me to view our politics through a fresh lens and effectively fight for social and economic justice.
Effective grassroots and political organizing is the key to fighting for our bold progressive agenda and I have continued to fight for these values as Vice Chair of the “Fremont, Union City, and Newark Progressives” (F.U.N.) This position has allowed me to tackle pressing issues affecting vulnerable populations within our city. Throughout the past few years, I witnessed my home of Fremont, CA be overrun by rampant development, overwhelming our infrastructure and accelerating gentrification. Our mission at F.U.N. is to bring new voices, fighting for responsible development and clean money campaigns, into our local, state, and federal governments.
As an ADEM, I will tirelessly fight for campaign finance reform, a Green New Deal, single-payer healthcare, universal Pre-K, tuition free public colleges, Social Security for All (Universal Basic Income), and putting an end to private, for profit prisons.
I would be honored to have your support, so we can continue to fight for our bold progressive agenda that will prioritize people over profit.
