1. Addressing climate. If we don't address this issue, no other issue will matter for future generations. 2. Universal healthcare. We spend twice as much on healthcare as other developed nations, yet w/ worse outcomes. Replace our dysfunctional financing system w/ an efficient system that covers all people for all medical, dental, & mental health needs. Leave decisions--including reproductive health decisions–in hands of patients & doctors, without interference from others. 3. Economic justice. So all people can meet basic needs incl. childcare, safe & secure housing, food, transportation & other necessities. Economic inequality leaves some w/ unimaginable wealth while most are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to survive.
I have authored and supported bills to create automatic voter registration, expand access to early & absentee voting, require voter information be provided in multiple, and prohibit voter intimidation. I also continue fighting to take big money out of the political process so political decisions are based on the merits of the issues, not the amount of money spent by powerful interests.
Minnesota’s disparities are worse than other states—this must be a priority. That’s why I support the MN Health Plan, to address inequities in access to care, and ensure all people, without exception, can access culturally competent, caring providers. That’s why I support economic justice, so all people can have safe, secure affordable housing, transportation, schools, etc. That’s why I work for public safety & criminal justice reforms.
For a vibrant economy, we must invest in people, with safe communities, a strong public education system, quality childcare, a clean environment, etc. Addressing a challenge like climate does not threaten our economy; it strengthens it, reducing energy consumption & costs.

A strong public sector delivers essential services which gives people more affordable transportation & housing. Cuts in government spending frequently raise costs to the public, making the pain of inflation worse.
Politicians cannot claim to be serious about public safety without addressing gun violence. Responsible gun regulations would save lives & reduce violent crime.

Yes, we need background checks & red-flag laws but ALSO, a comprehensive approach that requires training and insurance to carry guns, as well as licensure and registration, banning large capacity magazines & ghost guns, requiring safe storage, and much more. My comprehensive gun violence prevention legislation: Senate File 3377 & 3378.
