Strengthening Our Democracy

Our democratic system is one we can no longer take for granted. It relies on protecting the right to vote, ensuring every American has equal access to the ballot, and upholding legitimate election results in this country. I’m committed to thwarting any attack on these hard-fought freedoms in addition to protecting the civil rights of every American no matter their race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity. 

Candidates and public servants must do more to earn back the trust of voters by making sure our government is working for the people, not for faceless corporations and special interests. The role of money in our political system is corrosive and has prevented progress on many common sense issues from gun safety reforms to bringing down the cost of prescription drugs. I want to be a part of the effort to root out corruption and advocate for more transparency and accountability in our politics and governing, which is why I’m not taking a dime of corporate PAC money or fossil fuel money in this race. In addition, I support bold policies like the For The People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.
