EPISODE 103 – FATIMA FOR ASSEMBLY DISTRICT 65 IS CLOSING IN

Fatima Iqbal-Zubair returns to the show on a very special day, her birthday! We discuss the roots of her two-year campaign for Assembly District 65 (formerly Assembly District 64) in Watts’ schools, including her seven years with the Robotics team there, as well as the final push for donations to her grassroots campaign leading up to Election Day; Assembly District 65 is on the south side of Los Angeles and includes communities in Watts, Willowbrook, Compton, and more. You can learn more about her campaign at fatimaforassembly.com and follow her on Instagram at @fatimaforassembly.
