As both a student and educator I have been given the unique opportunity of a multifaceted experience of gaining from and serving my community. As a political science student, I’ve gained insight on issues that impact myself and countless millennials, I support free/debt-free college tuition, universal basic income, and younger democratic representation. As a literacy tutor for an underrepresented Oakland elementary school, I’ve seen the impact of socioeconomic and racial inequality firsthand, I care deeply for social/economic/racial justice. As an Afgan-American woman, I’ve seen far less than proportional representation and would love to become a voice for my community.
My name is Marwa Abubakr and I ask for your support in serving as your delegate for Assembly District 20. The Democratic Party is in need of fresh thoughts and new voices. Voices that reflect our progressive values with regards to healthcare, prison reform, education, the environment, etc. I will advocate for single-payer healthcare, universal basic income, the New Green Deal, and criminal justice reform amongst other progressive platforms. I humbly ask for your vote as we pave the way for a new Democratic Party, one that truly embodies our base and principles.
