Nabilah Islam

Georgia Senate, District 7, GA

Raised right here in Gwinnett County, Nabilah is a lifelong fighter, organizer, and community advocate dedicated to advancing Democratic causes. As the daughter of working-class immigrants, Nabilah watched her parents work long hours to put food on the table. When she was in high school, her mother was injured at the warehouse she worked at as an order puller. Nabilah saw firsthand the devastating effects our broken healthcare system can have on families. Nabilah is running for State Senate because she understands the need for quality healthcare access, when elected Nabilah will fight to expand Medicaid.

As a product of Gwinnett County Public Schools, Nabilah knows how important our public education is for the success of our students. That is why she will fight for fully funded schools and a strong curriculum. She will be an advocate for our teachers and vote to increase teacher salaries and benefits.

Nabilah has been a fighter for our voting rights and in the State Senate she will protect our access to the ballot. Nabilah served as a Senior Advisor to the Gwinnett Democratic Party where she helped lead outreach to underserved communities– leading to the strongest Democratic performance in the county and helping to elect President Joe Biden. During the critical Senate runoffs, Nabilah led an organization, which knocked on over 34,000 doors, turning out Black and Brown voters across Gwinnett for Senators Ossoff and Warnock. Nabilah is a committed fighter for her district and will always uplift our community.
