My Top 3 Priorities

  • I’m fighting for racial & economic justice for ALL. We need systemic change that returns power to the people, away from billionaires & big corporations and gets money out of politics.
  • We need to end our forever wars and prioritize universal & affordable health care, debt-free public education, and stand up for our planet and democracy. Environmental justice is a public health issue -- we must tackle climate change & pollution
  • We need bold policies to address the affordable housing crisis in our communities, prevent & alleviate homelessness, & ensure every family can afford the basics -- a safe place to call home, healthy food, good schools, & a secure retirement.
