Equality

Women and minorities still aren’t paid as much as white men for the same job!

This has got to change, but I can’t fight alone. We need to work together to lift everyone.

My work with the Pawnee Goddesses has been some of the most rewarding of my life. test When we work together to empower young women, we empower the community.

Raising the Minimum Wage

The average American worker hasn’t had a raise in 30 years, when adjusted for inflation. All the while the price of education, cars, homes, even milk have skyrocketed. Raising the minimum wage won’t just increase the money in someone’s pocket, it will rebuild America’s middle class.

Universal Healthcare

Taking care of our citizens should be the government’s top priority. If we’re going to protect them with Defense, we need to make sure their basic needs are being met as well. Coverage shouldn’t just be for those who can afford it, or were fortunate enough to go to college, and maybe land a job with benefits.
