MEET SALIM

NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY
I am a committed community servant with over 20 years of experience in community organizing and leadership. I was elected to commissioner of District 8C07 in November 2018. As Commissioner, I advise the federal and local government on matters concerning economic development, education, budget concerns, area infrastructure, public safety, and affordable housing for over 14,000 residents.

As the leader of District 8C07, I have held the first Commission Budget hearing and organized the District 8C07's first Historically Black College & University College Tour. I have created a variety of STEM, financial literacy & Health programs for children in one of the most marginalized and vulnerable communities in Washington DC.

I am a multi-media journalist. I produce the television show Rhythm-N-Justice, that can be viewed on DCTV and Fairfax Television. The show highlights national/local organizations, community leaders and progressive artists. I am a freelance journalist and photographer. I have written articles for the NY Amsterdam News, San Francisco Bay View and the Houston Forward Times.
