Fatima's Policy Priorities
We can't wait for systemic change. Fatima will fight for the bold actions & systemic solutions our community deserves.
Digámoslo como es: el Distrito 64 está experimentando racismo ambiental. Con la presencia de una gran refinería de petróleo, muchas refinerías de gas natural, sitios de desechos químicos y la falta de cumplimiento de los códigos de construcción en este distrito, tenemos líderes que no tienen la voluntad política o el coraje para decir que ya es suficiente. El aire limpio, el agua limpia y la comida limpia son derechos humanos básicos, y no retrocederé de esta lucha hasta que hayamos alcanzado cada una de estas prioridades.
We can't wait any longer for clean air, clean water, and clean food for our communities.
Public education should be the great equalizer and provide a path to upward mobility. However, the primary school education system has not traditionally supported our low income Latinx and black students. I will be your strongest advocate for increased public education funding, including free & universal pre-K, through any means necessary.
We can't wait any longer for an education system that recognizes that our children are our future.
Estamos en una crisis moral. La tasa de personas sin hogar en Los Ángeles ha alcanzado un nivel ridículo, causando la muerte de 198 personas solo el año pasado. La gentrificación está sucediendo en comunidades a nuestro alrededor. Estar sin hogar es criminalizado por los legisladores. Suficiente es suficiente. La propiedad de la vivienda es un camino clave hacia la riqueza y es hora de un liderazgo que construya la riqueza en las comunidades de nuestro distrito, no la reduzca.
We can't wait any longer for affordable housing for all.
No one should have to decide between visiting the doctor or buying food. Everyone deserves access to high quality medical care, including reproductive health, mental health, and substance abuse coverage.
We can't wait any longer for healthcare for all.
Our criminal justice system is racist, cruel, and beyond repair, draining resources from our community and breaking apart families. We must push for comprehensive criminal justice reform that divests from prisons and policing, invests in restorative justice and alternatives to incarceration, and that truly values our communities.
We can't wait any longer to divest from the police and invest in our communities.
Immigrants are our family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors; for many of us, we are immigrants. We help create the backbone of the community, yet we are denied access basic rights and resources that would allow us to thrive. Immigration reform can't wait.
We can't wait any longer for an immigration system that treats all of us with dignity.
California has built the world’s fifth largest economy of the backs of everyday people who are now barely able to make ends meet. Our leaders are throwing band-aid solutions into our communities, demonstrating their continued allegiance to big business by making backdoor deals with real estate developers, the oil and gas industry and many more. There is a clear lack of upward economic mobility for residents in our district, and we deserve better.
We can't wait any longer to guarantee good jobs and equitable access to resources for all.
