Why Lily for Michigan?
EDUCATION: More funding for schools including support services and therapists for students and staff.
MENTAL HEALTH & HEALTH CARE: Everyone deserves healthcare coverage and individuals with disabilities deserve services to help them and their families live a quality life.
ECONOMIC EQUITY: Raising wages and providing vocational learning options with training to our workforce.
Lily understands the importance of a healthy, more equitable community. Her family immigrated from Taiwan when she was three years old. Lily has integrated into the community as a wife, mother of an autistic son, attorney, activist and advocate willing to openly fight for marginalized communities, economic and social equity. Now she is running for a larger platform to represent you in the 72nd as a State Representative.
As your Michigan State Representative, I will dedicate my energy, experience, and skills as an attorney, advocate, and ally to:
Improve support services for students, teachers, staff, and schools and ensure high quality education for all students
Support for a Single Payer Healthcare system that includes Mental Health and Disability Services
Protect the environment
Strengthen the economic development and resources for small businesses, farms, and start-ups to thrive in Michigan, while promoting fair wages
