Tallahassee is broken and does not serve the people of Florida, but special interests and right-wing agendas. Dr. Barbara Sharief personally understands the struggles families here face because she’s lived through them. After her father’s death to gun violence, it was really tough to make ends meet. But Dr. Sharief never gave up. With the help of food banks and working as a store clerk and waitress, she put herself through nursing school. Later, she started her own business where she believes strongly in taking care of her employees, offering them free health care and rainy day savings funds. In Tallahassee, she’ll take care of families and workers like she does her own: fighting for a $15 min wage so you can support your family, paid family and medical leave, and more affordable healthcare. She’ll never stop working for you.
