Andrew Yang’s Humanity Forward PAC Endorses Qasim Rashid

9/17/2020

“Qasim is a big thinker on policies and a passionate advocate of Universal Basic Income running in a competitive Virginia district against a 6-term Republican incumbent.”  says Yang

STAFFORD, VA – Today, Qasim Rashid, Human Rights Lawyer and Democratic Candidate for VA-01, has been endorsed by former Presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s political action committee Humanity Forward. 

“Qasim Rashid is a human rights lawyer, a devoted father and husband, and most importantly of all, someone who brings people together. When a Virginia resident tweeted an Islamophobic message to Qasim in February, Qasim responded by donating to help pay off his medical debt. That act of kindness started a different conversation; they even met up, and the resident planted a Qasim Rashid for Congress sign in his front yard,” says Yang. “Qasim is a big thinker on policies and a passionate advocate of Universal Basic Income running in a competitive Virginia district against a 6-term Republican incumbent. Let’s go Qasim!” 

“Andrew Yang impacted the lives of so many with his run for president which focused on developing an economy that works for the people,” says Rashid. “He has brought innovation and energy to our political system. I’m proud to accept his endorsement and I look forward to working to put humanity first and make Universal Basic Income a reality.”
