• I would support an Equal Pay Act, to ensure that all Americans are paid equally for equal work.
  • I would support legislation that would provide the same nondiscrimination protections to LGBTQIA Americans as any other protected class under federal law.
  • I would support legislation that would guarantee that same-sex couples are entitled to access the same federal benefits as any other family.
  • I would support federal sentencing guidelines to prevent the unfair incarceration of people of color for minor crimes.  I would also support programs to help people coming out of prison to have access to employment and housing.
  • We should also implement de-escalation training and community outreach for law enforcement to reduce the number of innocent people of color who are shot by law enforcement.
  • We need policies that will address and reverse environmental racism.  Low-income marginalized communities of color are disproportionately exposed to pollutants. Environmental racism results when certain communities are targeted for undesirable land uses, such as landfills, hazardous waste sites and industrial plants.   A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determined that 11.2 percent of African American children and 4.0 percent of Mexican-American children are poisoned by lead, compared with 2.3 percent of white children.
