1. Our right to free and fair elections is under real threat, particularly regarding the rights of our Black and brown communities. I’m committed to protecting our democracy by making voting as close to automatic and truly easy as possible.

2. Our rights to make decisions about our own bodies and our own lives are also under attack following SCOTUS’ recent decisions. I’ll continue working for abortion access and ensuring other rights, like freedom to marry and separation of church and state.

3. All Minnesotans deserve resources to thrive including affordable and accessible healthcare, housing, food, education, economic opportunity, and a healthy climate. I’ll continue working on the funding and policy changes needed in these areas.
Minnesota is known for safe, secure and accessible elections and nation-leading rates of voter participation. But the integrity of our elections and safety of our local election workers are put at risk by disingenuous efforts to eliminate fraud that does not exist. I would oppose any and all efforts to weaken our system and will continue to work to see automatic voter registration at the DMV, pre-registration of 16-17 year olds, and outreach within schools and communities of new Americans.
I will continue to support legislation that enacts recommendations from the House Select Committee on Racial Justice Report to the Legislature from December 2020. These address all aspects of community life, including health, housing, public safety, education, and economic opportunity. I’ll also continue to work to ensure that legislation we hear in my committees, even if not explicitly focused on disparities, addresses our most persistent disparities, and ensures we do not exacerbate them.
I will continue my focus on partnering with labor and building more economic inclusion with women, veterans, and members of the BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disability, and other underrepresented communities. To ensure economic viability, we need to invest in our community through:

- Affordable housing with a path to home ownership - Access to education, esp. trades and technical careers - Paid family/medical leave & universal health care - Affordable, quality child care - Affordable and sustainable energy
I would support common sense legislation that removes assault rifles from our streets, bans ghost guns, establishes more rigorous background checks, requires firearms to be locked up, and raises the age at which people can own or carry guns. I would also support legislation to provide mental health expertise on the ground within police forces. Even as some federal legislation proceeds, there is much we can do in Minnesota to reduce the risk to people in our state.
