North Carolina State Senate, District 38
The fight for North Carolina State Senate District 38 is personal for Mujtaba Mohammed. The importance of creating fairness and opportunity for all is critical to him. Giving priority to those most vulnerable in the community is his life’s mission. Joel Ford’s time in the State Senate has been marred by missed votes and a maintenance of the status quo as he regularly votes in line with the Republican leadership in Raleigh.
Over the years, Mujtaba has been a tireless advocate for children and families, acquiring an intimate understanding of the challenges that everyday families encounter through his work as a former staff attorney and child advocate at the Council for Children’s Rights, and a fighter for indigent people as an Assistant Public Defender in Charlotte.
In addition to defending the rights of the underprivileged in the courtroom, and fighting to connect low-income families to the services they need every day, Mujtaba continues to demonstrate his commitment to children and families through his work on the Boards of Directors of local non-profit organizations such as Council for Children’s Rights and Larry King’s Clubhouse: Children’s Care Center.
Mujtaba is fully committed to improving public education in North Carolina, fighting income inequality, and ensuring racial basis and discrimination is eliminated from the criminal justice system. Mujtaba Mohammed is a true progressive who is ready to take a stand for the people of District 38 and deliver the change that Joel Ford has willingly prevented for years.
