My Top 3 Priorities

  • Addressing inequities that lead to disparate outcomes (wages, housing, health care, food security, criminal justice system).
  • Transition to green energy/economy to address climate change, environmental justice issues, grow the economy, and create skilled jobs that pay living wages.
  • Fully fund public education preschool through college in order to close the opportunity gap.
