Former State Delegate Aisha N. Braveboy is a candidate for State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County. Aisha is an accomplished lawyer with more than 17 years of legal and legislative experience. She is the Manager of Government Affairs for Children’s National Health System and serves Of-Counsel to the Law Offices of Gabriel J. Christian and Associates, where she represents clients in criminal and civil matters. For the past 13 years, Aisha has also served as pro-bono legal counsel for the Community Public Awareness Council (C-PAC), a community-based juvenile diversionary program that has successfully diverted over four thousand students from the criminal justice system.
As a Delegate, Aisha was appointed by the Speaker of the House to serve as Chair of the Consumer Protection Subcommittee. She was elected by her peers to serve as Chair of the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus, where she guided the 44-member organization on a wide range of policy issues including parity for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, reducing mass incarceration, enhancing tools to prosecute rapists, increasing opportunities for women and minority-owned businesses, and reducing health disparities in our state.
As a lawyer, Aisha was recognized as a rising star by Superlawyers Magazine and received the Legal Excellence award from the J. Franklyn Bourne Bar Association and the President’s Award from the National Bar Association.
Aisha has dedicated substantial pro bono efforts to providing worthy individuals and causes in our community with legal representation. In 2015, Aisha represented the Teamsters confronting the closure of a major supermarket distribution center in the county. Through her efforts, more than 700 jobs were saved.
Aisha has also fought for homeowners who were victimized by their lenders and facing foreclosure, seniors subject to financial abuse from their housing cooperative, and a same-sex couple who faced discrimination from their neighborhood association. In another case, she saved an historic African American home that was literally minutes from being demolished.
Aisha has already won endorsements from Congressman Anthony Brown, Retired Federal Judge and former State’s Attorney Alexander Williams, the Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO, Teamsters Local 730, Teamsters Joint Council 55, UFCW Local 400, International Union of Painters & Allied Trades Local 51 and Plumbers Local 5. Additionally, citizens and community organizations across the County are signing on to her campaign.
