Omar is not an establishment candidate, and while he is a consensus maker, he will not back down from a fight. He was hunted down, tortured, and nearly killed for speaking out against injustice. Still, he stood strong. His experience, values and track-record should leave no doubt in the mind of any Rhode Islander that when it comes to protecting the rights of, and serving, the residents of the Ocean State there will be no fiercer advocate.
DEFEND ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY
Workers Rights are Human Rights.
As a founder of one of Rhode Island’s leading grassroots socioeconomic development agencies, Omar understands the struggles, dreams, and potential of Rhode Island’s hardworking families. He also understands that workers, the disenfranchised, and the most vulnerable must be heard. Omar will defend and empower these groups by supporting the passage of the PRO act, which will ensure worker’s right to unionize, and by supporting expanded federal support for technical, vocational, and on-the-job training programs. Omar’s economic, environmental, health, and education plans are designed to build opportunities for every Rhode Islander, regardless of their background.
