Dignity and Opportunity
We support professionalizing jobs to build careers, expanding collective bargaining rights and supporting worker organizing drives. We must close the opportunity gap by investing in early education and interventions, and expanding access to childcare and affordable education from preschool through higher education.
We must address our homelessness crisis with compassionate, evidence-based approaches like low barrier supportive housing. We will develop harm reduction and community-based programs to protect & support those with substance dependency to protect the health and safety of all Seattleites.
Social and Racial Justice
We will challenge systemic injustices by building coalitions and joining movements with communities of color, immigrant rights groups, the LGBTQIA community, disability rights groups, and other organizations fighting for the rights of minoritized people.
We need new zoning for economic diversity and transit accessibility. We must build more affordable units and incentivize nonprofit developers to lower and stabilize housing prices for students, families, seniors, and low-income workers.
My plan to meet our city’s climate goals begins with supporting communities most impacted by climate change. I plan to ensure a just transition for workers through Green energy apprenticeship programs, free and expanded transit funded through congestion pricing, and new construction of green social housing.Learn More

“As a working scientist at UW researching Parkinson’s disease and a rank-and-file member of her union, Emily will bring evidence-based progressive policy to the Seattle City Council. With science actively under attack from the far-right, it’s never been more important to elevate powerful voices like Emily’s. We’re proud to stand with her because she’s the best candidate for the working-class in District 4.”
