Debbie Mucarsel-Powell

FL-26 (D)
Current office holder: Carlos Culbero (R)
Debbie immigrated to the United States as a young girl and has early memories of the one-room apartment her family lived in, while her mother worked double shifts as a home health care provider and attended school in the evenings and on the weekends to learn English. She has dedicated the past 20 years to serving the Miami-Dade communities as a life-long organizer of non-profit organizations. She is running for Congress to help restore opportunities to families who are struggling to get by. She wants to help grow the economy and pay workers a living wage to give people a fair chance.
How does Debbie align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Debbie supports a living wage and would work to grow the economy and make college affordable. She will work to fully fund our public education system, expand financial aid programs, lower interest rates for federal student loans while working on a plan to provide free community college to families.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: It is Debbie's priority to ensure women are paid the same as men for equal work, and especially women of color, who particularly get the short end of the stick whn it comes to equal pay. She will fight to end gender discriminaton in the areas of education, employment, health care, and all other spheres. As a Hispanic and first-generation American, Debbie knows firsthand the challenges immigrants face in this country. She believes that we need to fix our broken immigration system, replacing it with an accountable system that includes an expedited path to citizenship for DREAMers and their families.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Debbie has worked tirelessly to expand access to healthcare for people in her community. She wants to improve the health care system without abandoning the people who need it most. Debbie strongly advocates immediate and effective action to reduce carbon emissions and invest in green energy.
