Jonathon Akkari

Dearborn City Council, MI

Jon is an attorney and activist dedicated to fighting on behalf of working families. As the son of a Lebanese immigrant that has worked 40 years as a union tool and die maker, and proud mother and homemaker, Jon understands the day-to-day struggles that ordinary people face. Jon is the first member of his family to graduate from a four year university, and to obtain a professional degree and license. In law school, Jon fought for the rights of unemployment beneficiaries falsely accused of fraud by a broken system, and to ensure equal access to the legal profession for visually impaired people. As an attorney, Jon represented injured litigants against greedy insurance companies. As Dearborn's next City Councilmember, Jon will advocate for a welcoming community that invests in the success of its residents.
