Priya Sundareshan was born & raised in the LD18 district. She teaches natural resources law at the University of Arizona, and previously advocated for sustainable fisheries with the Environmental Defense Fund. She is a voting rights advocate and has been leading voter protection efforts and engagement on redistricting within the Arizona Democratic Party. She studied engineering at MIT and law and natural resource economics at the U of A, so she knows we need more science-based decision-making in politics. She has a growing family and wants her children and all children to inherit a sustainable world. Priya is running for State Senate in the new LD18 to make Arizona a leader in renewable energy, restore balance to our water supply through conservation and efficiency, and improve our democracy by making voting easy and accessible to all.
