Privacy Policy

In Congress, I will champion immigration reform, fight for working-class families, work to ensure that medicare for all provides quality healthcare for all, strengthen our public education system, support common sense gun laws, and reform our criminal justice system, among priorities. I will also fight to restore and further uplift the role of science and research to bring evidence-based solutions to address our country’s most pressing challenges, the foremost of which being our climate crisis. And I will work to improve federal hate crimes tracking so we can take stronger action to better protect communities of color, LGBTQ persons, Muslims, Jews, and people of faith, and others who feel marginalized by this administration.
