It is up to us to be the revolution we keep waiting for. We deserve leadership that not only speaks for us, but speaks with us.
Sakinah has personally experienced the impacts of our broken systems and is prepared to fight to fix them. Our movement is about more than an election- it is about reshaping the narratives that drive our policies.
Our country doesn’t stay the same year after year, and neither should our representation.
” A New Kind of Leadership “
Sakinah is not new to overcoming obstacles and accomplishing things that seem out of reach to most. She spent the first half of her life living on a military base, and the rest living in poverty.
By age 14 she had moved 19 times and attended 9 different schools. At 13 Sakinah spent her Saturdays cleaning bathrooms in vacation homes. She had picked up a job to help at home because her single-mom was out of work.
