We had an inspiring morning conversation with Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, Democrat Candidate for Congress in the First Congressional District of Massachusetts.

On this session, we discussed the motivations for Tahirah to run for Congress, the needs for new perspectives in Congress regarding the needs and struggles in the Western Mass communities, and some of the priorities on Tahirah’s campaign, such as universal health care; eliminating barriers for prosperity; civil rights; access to education, internet.
