    Joe is a public school dad who will always keep our communities safe — just as he did as an assistant U.S. attorney, assistant district attorney, and county solicitor taking on gun violence,  sexual predators, and human trafficking.


    Joe’s fought crooked politicians and corrupt corporations alike. From the mayors of Allentown and Reading to Donald Trump, and from corporate polluters to Big Pharma and Big Tech, Joe doesn’t shy away from holding powerful interests accountable.


    Joe knows firsthand that our communities can be safe and fair. He’s fought for fair pay, pushed to end discriminatory hiring practices, and worked with bipartisan leaders to ensure that the criminal justice system gives people a second chance.

    Community and Family

    The son of a Muslim engineer who came to America to build bridges, Joe fights to give everyone a seat at the table. He’s advocated for a more representative Pennsylvania government, both as a member of the Governor’s Advisory Commission for Asian Pacific American Affairs and as a founder of Second Generation PAC, an organization supporting candidates from immigrant communities, just like his brother, now State Rep. Tarik Khan.
