Barbara Sharief

Campaign Updates

Special election Democratic primary voters, particularly women and Black voters over the age of 35, need to see:

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 Washington, 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.

Dr. Barbara Sharief is an experienced public servant who personally understands the struggles many families here face because she’s lived 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. And she’s never stopped fighting the NRA and advocating for sensible gun reforms so no more families will have to go through the loss of a loved one to gun violence like she did. In Washington, she’ll take care of families and workers like she does her own.
