I am an original co-sponsor of the Justice in Policing Act (passed in the House). Our nation has been plagued by great inequities in law enforcement throughout our history. In my lifetime I have personally seen and experienced the impact of these injustices and I have been involved in rectifying these injustices from my first days as an activist and later as an elected official. The Justice in Policing Act is a good first step but it does not fully address some of the underlying issues. We continue to ignore profound, persistent institutional social problems such as racism, poverty, lack of opportunity, discrimination, lack of education, mental and physical health care. I will to continue my lifelong work to address these issues in a signif
I am an original co-sponsor of the Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019 and the For the People Act of 2020 (both passed in the House). These bills address voter access, election integrity, election security, political spending, ethics and establishes new criteria for determining which states and political subdivisions must obtain preclearance (restores and strengthens Voting Rights Act) before changes to voting practices in these areas may take effect. We have seen in practice that discrimination in access to the ballot continues to exist and grew worse after the Supreme Court weakened the Voting Rights Act. These bills also address other direct and indirect barriers to equal access to the ballot.

I am a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal (HRes 109) (agreed to in the House) which calls for achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions; establishing millions of high-wage jobs and ensuring economic security for all; investing in infrastructure and industry; securing clean air and water, climate and community resiliency, healthy food, access to nature, and a sustainable environment for all; and promoting justice and equality via a 10 year mobilization to: build smart power grids; upgrade all existing buildings and constructing new buildings to achieve maximum energy and water efficiency; remove pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation and agricultural sectors; clean up existing hazardous waste and abandoned sites; ensu
I support and am an original co-sponsor of Medicare for All. Until that passes I support continuing to strengthen Obamacare.

Before getting into policy there needs to be an open, honest, and transparent conversation about our country's past. For far too long the historic and present hurt of what this country has placed upon the Black community has had a blind eye turned to it and has been dismissed on numerous occasions. Healing comes from direct acknowledgement and provides us as a country the opportunity to press forward as one. I will pursue policies that promote an enhanced and longer training program for ALL future police officers. I will also pursue the training of current police officers at all levels on subjects such as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as well as Implicit Bias. In conjunction with that, I will pursue repealing qualified immunity that polic
Yes, I support the FULL restoration of the Voting Rights Act because regardless of your race, gender, creed, or culture, if you are a citizen of the United States of America you deserve the right to vote with no barriers.
I would address the climate crisis simply by encouraging people to do their part on a daily basis. There isn’t one person who can be the soul solution to this issue. However, the solution lies within citizens doing their part daily. Starting small is the best way to get started. For example, showing people what carrying around a reusable water bottle will do not only for our ecosystem but also from a financial lens. In addition, within my office we will be paperless and utilize technology to help us eliminate as much waste as possible as we combat climate change. All in all, I would listen to our global experts and the data they provide us to make the necessary adjustments that will benefit not only this district but the world. 
Over the long term, I will strengthen the Affordable Care Act, without personal mandate, to ensure healthcare access for all. This provides our constituents the opportunity to not have to choose between a medical procedure and feeding their families. In addition, I will assist in leveling out the costs of prescription drugs and common surgical procedures. A person should not have to take on significant levels of debt in order to be healthy and sustain their life in this country. Finally, I will continue to support and promote the covering of individuals with preexisting health conditions by insurance companies.
