Emgage PAC could always count on Delegate King on being a vocal voice for Muslim American issues in Richmond. Delegate King spoke against Islamophobic legislation as well as legislation that infringed on the right of Americans to boycott and divest. Emgage PAC has no doubt that Delegate King will continue her work to create healthier, more sustainable communities in upcoming legislative sessions. She will expand on past legislative victories, including funding for sustainable food production systems, to efforts to electrify public transit, increase green building, and improve clean energy investments. As a champion for the working class, Delegate King is focused on delivering high-impact climate, community-based solutions for all.
