Asiya taking a bath

This is my daughter Asiya taking a bath, and I am glad that she doesn’t need to worry about the safety of her bath water. I want to make sure that all children have access to safe, clean and affordable housing throughout their lives.


Empty Lots

Empty lots are parcels of property with no housing or other structure are often a sign of urban neighborhoods in decline, without sufficient economic resources to sustain them.  In many poor neighborhoods, empty lots become places where illegal activity can take place, trash gets disposed of, and in other ways is an eyesore for the neighborhood.

Current Issue

Land bank legislation is forthcoming - Potential solution that allows community organizations and other individuals invested in community improvement to make use of the 40,000+ abandoned lots in the city.
