Jahana Hayes is the former National Teacher of the Year who will be an incredible champion for public education. Her campaign has centered true progressive change, including Medicare for All, raising the minimum wage, and fighting for equality and social justice for all.
My decision to run for Congress is inspired by the people in my community who have become disengaged because they struggle to find themselves reflected in the narrative. People with real stories, challenges and successes that never make it into the discussion. I am running because I see myself in every student, teacher, mom, sister, daughter, friend, neighbor and stranger I meet, and their story is my story.
