Meet Burhan

I am an MIT graduate whose immigrant childhood was shaped by fear of eviction, driving my commitment to ensuring housing security for all. I have been on the board of A Better Cambridge and founded the nonprofit Abundant Housing MA to address our regional housing crisis, all while growing a COVID care startup from six to hundreds and eventual acquisition as an early employee.


I immigrated to the United States from Pakistan when I was four years old. I grew up on food stamps and Medicaid. I was lucky enough to get a full scholarship to MIT, where I studied sustainable energy. Serving as an EMT in Cambridge, I have helped residents at their most vulnerable.


During my first term, I focused on issues of housing affordability, public safety, the climate, & universal pre-k.

Progress can and should start with us. 

After all, if we don’t lead - who will?
