LISA HUNTER: CANDIDATE FOR DC CITY COUNCIL
Lisa Hunter is a candidate for City Council in DC's Ward 6 and if elected, she would be the first Latino elected to the City Council. Hunter has a long history of serving her community and just three days after graduating from college, she boarded a plane to Guyana to begin service in the Peace Corps. Once she returned to the US, Hunter took a job at Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters. She was later deployed to St. Louis as a field organizer, where she met voters and learned about the issues facing their communities. Hunter was driven to run for office by the inequalities she observed in pay equity, gender inequality, housing instability, and healthcare. Endorsed by The American Women's Party and Run For Something, Lisa Hunter is a true champion for women's rights.
