My Top 3 Priorities

  • I will boost working families by building on Obamacare with a public option, cracking down on employers who try to bust unions, and tripling funding for low-income schools and making education beyond high school affordable.
  • I will address urgent challenges by passing comprehensive immigration reform, passing criminal justice reform, and investing $1.7 trillion to achieve net-zero emissions, making us the world’s clean energy leader and creating 10 million jobs.
  • I will restore the soul of our nation by passing the Equality Act and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act, restoring the Voting Rights Act, and fighting for a constitutional amendment to rid federal elections of private funding.
