Common Sense Gun Reform

Every single day, 100 lives are lost due to gun violence. This adds up to over 30,000 lives each year. Thirty thousand children, neighbors, and friends taken because of a failure to enact common-sense legislation.

Educating Our Future

Every child deserves a quality education one that offers opportunities to learn the skills and tools necessary to succeed in today’s world.

Improving Access to Higher Education

America has long prided itself as a land of hope and opportunity. A nation where anyone can be anything and a person is only limited by the limitations of their dreams. This opportunity has always been tied to the strength and availability of our academic system and institutions of higher learning.

Honoring Our Veterans

Serving in America’s Armed Forces is one of the most courageous and selfless decisions citizens of this country can make. It is a decision we should never cease to honor and celebrate. 

LGBTQ+ Rights

We have made incredible strides as a country in the fight to support and empower our vibrant LGBTQ+ community. No matter who you love or how you identify, equality is a human right that must be extended to everyone who calls this nation home. 

Lowering the Cost of Prescription Drugs

 

Under no circumstance should a family or individual have to forego meeting their most basic needs such as food, transportation, and housing just so that they can afford to fill a lifesaving prescription. However, this is the scenario that is playing out for far too many people across our nation. It is simply unacceptable.

Protecting Our Environment

There is no debate here: climate change is real and it’s wreaking havoc all over the globe. Each day our country fails to act on climate change, we threaten the future of our children and grandchildren and the long-term vitality of our planet. 

Women's Rights

I am proud and honored to represent a district with a rich history of fighting for women’s equality. From Susan B. Anthony to Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Louise Slaughter, we have made incredible strides in the fight for women’s rights  but there is so much more to be done.
