Stand With Mussab Ali!

Thank You For Your Support! (Scroll Down To Reach The Donation Form)

This campaign revolves around taking politics out of education and bringing the focus back to where it matters: the students. 

I am beyond grateful for your support through awareness, volunteering, and canvassing. However, as a 21 year old college student, I need every single dollar you can contribute.

This is a grass-roots movement that organizes people in all parts of Jersey City. I want to inspire national change by showing the difference a great education system can make in Jersey City.

If you can afford to, please consider donating whatever you can to this campaign.

About My Platform

My platform revolves around 3 major issues:

  • Safety - We need to make our schools a safe place from the violence that plagues our city.
  • Efficacy - We need education that is efficient and up to the date with the 21st century we live in
  • Diversity - We need schools that caters to the diversity of one of the most diverse cities in the entire nation.

During the 2016 campaign for JCBOE, Mussab’s opponents spent over $1,000,000. Mussab spent less than $4,000 and still managed to garner 7,000 votes. Mussab’s campaign raised awareness for the student perspectives in education and effects of crime on education.
