Meet Helen

I’m a mother, a teacher, a community organizer, and our city’s loudest champion for quality public schools. I’m fighting for a Philadelphia that works for all of us.

Since the day I was elected, I’ve led a progressive agenda that’s moving our city forward: Local control of our schools. Every student having a nurse, counselor, access to water, and the arts. Millions of dollars to support homeless youth and renters facing eviction. A Fair Workweek law that will protect more than 100,000 part-time workers. And I’m just getting started.

I’m running for City Council At-Large because Philadelphia needs a proven champion who won’t stop fighting for parents, families and working people everywhere. Together, let’s make 2019 our political moment.
