ACCOMPLISHMENT

I am working for you and our future generations to come.
As a member of ASAAL and BAAG, I helped create pilot programs for Halal and Kosher food in New York City public schools and create a senior center for the Desi community in Jamaica Muslim Center. We worked to bring the Eid Holiday into public school calendars and pass the Religious Garb Bill. We worked with the community to rename the street in front of Jamaica Muslim Center to JMC Way, as well as changed the street from two-way traffic to one-way traffic to make the community safer. We worked with Councilman Rory Lancman to add garbage bins alongside Hillside Avenue to reduce trash on the streets.
