Kicking Corruption

The most pressing issue facing our nation is the corruptive influence of money on our political system. To make Congress a reflection of the community, we must get "Big Money" and corporate lobbyists out of politics. I will push to establish campaign spending caps, 12-year congressional term limits, and the reversal of Citizens United.

Universal Healthcare

Healthcare is a human right. To secure this right, I support the creation of a free public healthcare option and policies that would make private insurance more affordable. We must pursue advances in healthcare quality and address the underlying causes of our extremely high healthcare costs.

Environmental Leadership

Climate change is here, it's real, and we need to act now. It's time to unlock America's Environmental Leadership and achieve complete carbon neutrality by 2040. Changes in the ways in which we produce energy, conduct business, and invest tax-dollars are required to curb the worst effects of climate change. Our pivot to a clean economy will unlock innovation and create millions of high paying jobs.

Equal Education

Every child deserves a world-class education. Neither zip code nor income should predict a person's quality of education. To make American primary education the best in the world, we must pay teachers what they deserve and reduce class sizes.

Justice for All

The United States has 5% of the global population and 25% of the prison population. American citizens are imprisoned at a higher rate than anyone else on Earth. I will push Congress to end mandatory minimum sentencing, return voting rights to ex-felons, recognize addiction as a disease, and take measures to implement implicit bias training for police officers. We must abolish private prisons and offer productive opportunities for those incarcerated.
