Johnson-Harrell is the first covered Muslim woman to be elected to the state House.

“I’m honored to represent the neighborhood that I proudly call my home,” Johnson-Harrell said. “I will work hard to ensure the voices and needs of my district are represented in Harrisburg.”

Johnson-Harrell’s legislative interests include several key issues, ranging from socioeconomic opportunity and education reform to making gun violence prevention a top priority in Harrisburg.

Prior to winning a special election on March 12, Johnson-Harrell served as supervisor of Victim Services in Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office.
