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.
