Democratic Candidate for Essex County Freeholder At Large
My name is Sabre Burroughs, best known as Sabre Bee. I am a Newark, New Jersey based community advocate and educator in social justice and vegan nutrition. As Co-founder of the Newark Water Coalition, I have engaged with residents in and around my home city on issues of water rights since 2018, as well as affordable housing with Newark Homes for All. Currently, I am running for Freeholder-at-Large in Essex County (line B).
Throughout my childhood, I grew up in a family of activists and organizers, which gave me early training in effective community engagement and methods of building social cohesion. I first began to apply and build on these skills in my role as Vice President of my high school class, and later as Vice President of the Amnesty International chapter at the College of New Jersey. In addition, I also was a student-leader of PRISM (an on-campus LGBTQIA advocacy organization), leading public relations and communications.
I hold a dual BA in English and Women & Gender Studies (Poli. Sci. minor), from the College of New Jersey where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I also completed a certification in Sports Nutrition with the International Sports Medicine Association (AAAI/ISMA).
