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 80th as a State Representative.

Protect the environment
Ensure social, racial, and criminal justice
