In these uncertain times, we need a candidate who knows first hand what it means to keep a roof over a family’s head, food on the table, and make ends meet. That candidate is Maya Dillard-Smith!
Maya is a teen mom, a civil rights lawyer and a Harvard trained organizer activist, economist, and policymaker with 20 years working on behalf of communities and in the public’s interest. Her expertise has been called upon by a member of Congress, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Census Congressional Monitoring Board, the National Bureau of Economic Research, and the U.S. Courts of Appeal. She’s managed $1 billion of taxpayer, private and philanthropic funds and she was the Georgia State Director of the ACLU. She has reformed systems and successfully held police, judges, and government officials accountable – winning lawsuits and rewriting laws. She’s been in the struggle and knows the struggle is real. Maya is exactly the leadership we need fighting for us in Washington, DC right now!
