28 year old Bernie organizer

young strong woman  Bronx born

community organizer member of the Democratic

Socialists of America Democratic party

said she couldn’t win against

powerful white man Queens stalwart

what a word

Representative Joseph Crowley

entrenched 19 year incumbent

twice her age

it’s time she said

for a racial generational ideological change

it’s time it’s time it’s time she said long odds

uphill she won she won

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.

  1. To restore decency and equal opportunity, we need Hope….
    We cannot put our Hope in a traditional “Blue Wave”.
    The Hope must be trans-racial, trans-cultural, trans-generational…
    It must be led by vibrant thinkers who reject “what got us here”…

    Transformative young leaders, channeling the energy, wisdom, and goodness of Bernie Sanders… Women (and men) like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez… Feel the Bern !!!

  2. Yea!!!! She Won!!!!
    Bernie would have too if he had the chance to run!!!

    My son is a Democratic Socialists of America member and volunteered for her campaign.
    It is the future!
