Priya is running for State Senate in the new LD18 to make Arizona a leader in renewable energy, restore balance to our water needs through conservation and efficiency, and improve our democracy by making voting easy and accessible to all.
Priya was born and raised in Tucson, and wants all Arizona children to receive the excellent public education she received growing up here. She teaches natural resources law at the University of Arizona and has advocated for an environmental nonprofit organization, and her experience will be an asset to the legislature in addressing climate change and water scarcity. She is a voting rights advocate and has been leading voter protection efforts and engagement on redistricting within the Arizona Democratic Party.
Priya studied engineering at MIT and law and natural resource economics at the U of A, so she knows we need more science-based decision-making in politics. As a mom of two young boys, she wants her children and all children to inherit a sustainable world and sustainable Arizona.
