Tariq K. Shabazz as Congressman

Mr. Shabazz is dedicated to bringing true progress to the nation via innovative policies founded on improving society. Some of the issues on his legislative agenda are promoting financial literacy throughout schools; Dedicate the federal government to treat trauma throughout the inner-cities, establishing a healthcare system that values health over dollar, substantially improve services to Veterans that have served this nation, and improve the conditions for our Military members ranging from housing issues to addressing mental health concerns.  

Tariq K. Shabazz is committed to addressing racial justice through equity programs which addresses years of economic instability  due to redlining and lack of community economic development. Social Justice reform must be the topic of discussion with the United States housing 25% of the world’s imprisoned population while only standing at 5% of the world’s total population.

Tariq K. Shabazz will be the candidate in Ohio’s District 11 that works to bolster America’s Cyber-security infrastructure. Within the digital age, there are more agencies incorporating digital applications within their daily operations. This may lead to improving the convenience within our nation’s critical agencies, but they make us more susceptible to sophisticated cyber-attacks. It is imperative that the Federal government increases its presence in safeguarding the country by expanding current programs working with states to develop robust cyber-security systems, assist small businesses in protecting their companies and their customers. The collection and storage of Privately Identifiable Information bares great responsibility and Mr. Shabazz will be the fighter in Congress to protect the people.
