MY BROAD PRIORITIES: Here are a few issues areas where I'd like to make some progress in the future:
  • Tackle Historic Wealth/Income Inequality By Focusing On Middle Class & Low-Income Residents

  • Get Real About Climate Change & Stop Dirty Energy Subsidies

  • Ensure Access To Affordable Child Care

  • Defend Reproductive Rights

  • Grow Our School Budget & Make College Affordable

  • Protect Civil Rights & Our Immigrant Population

WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN WORKING ON: Read my email newsletters discussing policy & legislative updates below. I serve on the House Judiciary Committee and Chair the Juvenile Law subcommittee, so I've had a particular focus on reducing mass incarceration, rolling back the drug war and helping foster youths. But I have a broad basket of policy interests and have prioritized social and economic justice issues, with a particular interest in election reform, criminal justice and civil liberties.
