Why Tennessee House District 84?

Dear Friends,

I am running to become your State Representative of District 84 because our communities - Oakhaven, Fox Meadows, Hickory Hill, South Riverdale, and Southwind deserve more and I want to advocate and serve the community that has given so much to me.

I am running because Tennessee House District 84 has boundless and untapped potential. I recognize the opportunities that exist and believe in the power of community. Our communities need investment. Investment in our children's future and education, investment in our health with affordable and accessible healthcare, investment in safer communities, and investment in criminal justice reform. Tennessee District 84 is worthy of  investment.

When asked why Tennessee House District 84, I will forever respond that Memphis is home, District 84 is home. Memphis raised me and it is now the place that empowers me. Empowers me to challenge the status quo, to advocate for those who look like me and deserve to live in a society that prioritizes both equity and justice for its citizen. It is the place that reminds me that civil and human rights will continue to be our greatest challenge; that the work is not done. 

Tennessee House District 84 is where I refuse to relinquish my power and it is where I want to give YOUR power back. As Alice Walker once said, “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.” We have power in Tennessee House District 84, we must utilize it.

I will continue to choose 901 and District 84. It is my sincere hope that you will choose me to represent you and District 84 on August 6,2020.
