Issue Position: Create a Truly Fair and Accepting America

Issue Position

This country will always be a work in progress. It's both an obligation and an opportunity. That's why you can count on me to work tirelessly toward making sure every family lives in an America where they feel safe and valued. As your Congresswoman, I will work toward comprehensive immigration reform that ensures a path to citizenship for all willing to follow the law, work and earn it. I will support criminal justice reform and work to create a judicial system that treats people of color, and indeed all Americans, equally. And now that the marriage struggle is over, we must turn our attention to protecting the LGBT community from discrimination in the workplace, housing and all other aspects of civic life. I will also support the Student Non-Discrimination Act to ensure that LGBT students attend school in a safe and supportive learning environment; while also supporting additional resources for homeless youth.
