It Takes a Woman to Get Things Done

Greetings friends, family, neighbors, and members of the community. It's been a pleasure to begin knocking on doors again and connecting with all of my neighbors in Malden. There is joy in service to others, whether it comes in the form of helping a family looking for a new place because their landlord drastically raised their rent, or helping a new citizen register to vote, I am here for all of you! These experiences make the steps fly by.


As a campaign, we have knocked on 1,500 doors! The response we've received has been incredible - after coming within 50 votes of a historic victory, people are excited that we persist!



March is Women’s History Month, and we honor the women who have moved mountains over the years. Last week, I attended the Massachusetts National Organization for Women’s Annual International Women’s Day breakfast, in partnership with 40+ organizations in the Greater Boston area. It was incredible to sit shoulder to shoulder with women on the frontlines fighting to maintain our rights in all areas of life.



My candidacy challenges an anti-choice, anti-LGBTQIA+ incumbent, and I am very aware that for the first time in modern history, our daughters stand to have fewer rights than their mothers before them. I won’t stand idly by as our concerns are ignored. As a Muslim woman in our society, I am no stranger to how the ignorance of others puts up barriers to keep us out. In the words of Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to run for Congress, “If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring in a folding chair.” If elected, I would be the first Muslim to serve in the Massachusetts State House. Not only that, but I would be the first woman to ever represent the District. I’m ready to break those barriers down. I’m not bringing a folding chair, I’m bringing an entire bench!
