Long time residents, East African immigrants and students – we came together and engaged in the political progress. 

We talked about the issues that concern us and we connected on the future we want to create.

“Tonight, we are celebrating this win, our win. But our work won’t stop. We will continue to build a more prosperous and equitable district – state and nation – where each and every one of us has opportunities to thrive and move forward together.”
