Equality For All
We must recognize that our institutions, while reformed, may still perpetuate practices that are either explicitly or implicitly biased against specific groups of people and continue to cause immeasurable harm.
We must maintain our role as the world leader of innovation to set the global agenda in critical areas like democratic norms, ethical business practices, human rights, and social equity.
Medicare for All
Healthcare is arguably the most critical issue facing our country today. With an aging population, rising care costs, and a widening wealth divide, many Americans are facing tremendous challenges when making choices about their health.
As a nation we must come to a unified understanding that many of our institutions are not designed to treat all Americans equally. This is especially true in our criminal justice system.
If we look back through history, there has always been a struggle between the interests of Labor and management. This struggle is entirely necessary to protect the rights of the individual employee.
In the United States we are all called to serve our country in many ways, but no one has answered that call with more honor, courage, and self-sacrifice than our active military personnel and veterans.
Voting Rights & Campaign Finance
We must guarantee equal, unrestricted access to our polling locations, end partisan gerrymandering of our communities, and eliminate “dark money” from our elections to ensure our fundamental American right of fair representation is upheld for everyone.
It is clear to the American people that our current federal minimum wage of $7.25 is not sufficient to cover the increasing costs of housing, services, healthcare, and basic quality of life expenses. The stagnation of the minimum wage has greatly contributed to the wealth gap that we are grappling with across the county.
