“Sema is a daughter of immigrants, oldest of 7 siblings and first American born child in her family. The sacrifices her parents and grandparents made are part of what fuels the reason she decided to run for U.S. Senate. She grew up in a migrant working family and she understands the struggle of the people that are burdened by crushing debt, job insecurities, and lack of healthcare coverage among other struggles of the working poor.
Sema worked in healthcare for 6 years until she attended college to obtain a ASN degree. Having a background in healthcare, Sema has experienced the flaws first hand in our healthcare system, something most politicians have not. Sema was a volunteer baseball coach several seasons and volunteer organizer for local baseball organizations. She is a passionate human rights advocate, activist and organizer in the Houston area. Sema is also a member of Democratic Socialist of America, who supports the DSA platform and DSA values. Before Sema officially joined the organization, she contributed to the DSA platform.
After a historic 2018 Primary election for U.S. Senate, campaigning on progressive issues, policies, and solutions, our campaign earned 24% of the Democratic vote as a first time candidate. Although Sema did not win the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, she continues to remain active.
Sema organized to empower voters to challenge their elected officials and candidates based on the issues to end systemic racism, poverty, the war economy, ecological devastation, and the distorted moral narrative as the Co-Chair of the Texas Poor People’s Campaign until she stepped down November of 2018 to run for the 2020 U.S. Senate election.”
