ORLANDO, FL, May 6, 2022 – Local leader Shaniqua "Shan" Rose has launched a campaign to represent House District 41 as a Florida State Representative. With many years of public and private experience advocating for the community, Shan is passionate about youth mentorship, humane approaches to homelessness, community-based crime reduction, and fighting for the equality of all Central Floridians.

"I have served Orlando for my entire professional career, and I'm excited at the opportunity to do even more," Shan said. "By prioritizing community-centered approaches to our challenges, I know I can help Central Florida realize its full potential."

As Florida State Representative for House District 41, Shan will work to Build Bridges to Close the Gaps; in race, religion, political affiliation, age, and gender, and work for the greater good of the people. She will push for education, economic diversity, sustainable development, and increase public safety. She will also focus on strengthening community collaborations so people can build relationships with their neighbors and bridging the gap between law enforcement and the community.

A survivor of gun violence, Shan knows the importance of public safety and quality community resources that create a safe space for everyone to live, work and play. She was a participant in the City of Orlando's night time economy study to ensure all can safely enjoy the entertainment Orlando has to offer, and also led a neighborhood association that won Neighborhood Watch of the Year twice, a testament to her dedication.

Shan lives in the Parramore area of Orlando with her young son, and has lived in Central Florida since her high school years at Poinciana High School. She holds an Associates Degree from Valencia College, a Bachelor of Business Administration from Polk State College and a Master's in Public Administration from American Public University System. After working for the City of Orlando for six years, Shan started Change For the Community (CFTC) in 2019 to leverage group action to make positive change in her community through youth mentoring, addressing homelessness and food insecurity, beautification, and more.

Shan is a member of several organizations and committees, including the NAACP, League of Women Voters, and National Congress of Black Women. In recognition of her community service, Shan has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from President Joseph Biden for her lifelong commitment to building a stronger nation through volunteer service, Social Justice Game Changer from the Orlando Magic, Community Hero by the Orlando Solar Bears, the Getting Results Award from Channel 6 News and many more.

Shan is on the ballot for the August 23, 2022 primary election. For more information, please visit
