Ashanti is a son of Prince George’s County, MD. Growing up in New Carrollton, attending school at St. Mary’s Landover Hills, and graduating from Parkdale High School he knows the challenges and triumphs District 22 has faced. Throughout his career as a nonprofit lobbyist, legislative staffer, and community advocate, he has brought people together to deliver results. As an elected official, he will fight economic and housing inequality, stabilize rising rents, deliver higher wages, and invest in green jobs of the future. As our community steps back in the ring to battle the economic inequities of COVID-19, they’ll need someone in Annapolis in their corner. Ashanti will be on the side of working people, who haven’t had a champion in a long time.
