Biographical Information

What kind of policies, if any, will you pursue to promote social and racial justice in our country?

Do you support the restoration of the Voting Rights Act? Why or Why not?

How would you address the climate crisis?

What will you do over the long term to ensure healthcare access for all?

In Congress, I will fight for:

Eliminating private prisons. The for-profit prison industry treats incarcerated people like commodities. They are more expensive than government-run prisons and they are inhumane. People’s freedom should not be bought and sold.

Ending mandatory minimum sentencing laws. These laws destroy lives for even minor offenses and fail to consider nuance or circumstance. They perpetuate a vicious cycle that keeps families torn apart and impoverished.

Investing in efficient public transportation

While the US only directly contributes 15% of global carbon emissions, our responsibility as a global leader is to set an example for countries everywhere and to pick up the slack for nations that don’t have the freedom or resources to make the kind of shift we can make here. When elected, I will work toward establishing factories for green industries like solar panels and expanding our bustling ecoto
Healthcare is a basic human right. No family should go bankrupt because of a medical emergency, unemployment, or a change in familial status. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the failures and shortcomings of our current system all the more clear. The economic catastrophe we are now facing has exposed the failures of healthcare being tied to employment. As millions lose their jobs, they lose their healthcare in the middle of a pandemic too. That’s not right. It is time for us to create a healthcare system that values people over profit.

The complicated web of private insurers, unregulated prescription drug costs, and employer-driven healthcare programs is prohibitively expensive. Over the next ten years, healthcare costs in the United States
