To: Owen Andrews, Labor & Immigration Outreach for Ian Schlakman for Baltimore City Council District 12
Subject: testimonial

I first met Ian Schlakman in the trenches of the Fight for 15 movement. He stepped up as a small business owner to unequivocally endorse a living wage for all Baltimoreans. At CASA in Action we were impressed with the depth of Ian's platform to harness the economic power of Baltimore's growing immigrant population through policies to ensure that Baltimore goes beyond being a welcoming city to immigrants, to a city that fully embraces and recognizes our diversity as one or our greatest strengths. His stance on immigrant rights reflects our shared understanding that the success of immigrants and Baltimore are intertwined and mutually reinforcing.

That’s why I’m proud to announce CASA in Action is endorsing Ian Schlakman for Baltimore City Council. His deep respect for the diverse residents of the 12th district and City of Baltimore and his clear vision for progressive solutions to systemic challenges faced by our city's diverse residents make him the best choice for the 12th district.
