Community Safety - In the legislature, I will fight for policies that take a holistic approach to public safety, hold police accountable for misconduct, and ensure solutions are community-centered.

Healthcare- State legislatures across the country are taking steps to pass laws that roll back our reproductive rights. I will fight hard in the Minnesota Senate to ensure that healthcare is accessible to all.

Education- As the daughter of a retired public school teacher, I saw how much my dad loved being an educator and helping mold the next generation of leaders. I will fight to ensure that our public schools are fully funded and work to close the gaps that are a disservice to the success of our state.
Minnesota does the work to make the polls accessible to all. We are able to provide many options to collect ballots with plenty of time offered. With these options come regulations that keep the process smooth, consistent, fair, and legal. I support early voting and absentee voting as well as the procedural tasks and regulations that secure our votes.
The last few years have only highlighted the substantial racial disparities that exist in our state. Whether it’s housing, climate, healthcare, education or public safety, these are all racial justice issues and should be treated as such. We cannot continue to approach these challenges in isolation. We need a coordinated approach in order to bring forth true racial justice. We need bold action to dismantle systemic racism and structural inequities.
An economy thrives when its workers thrive. Workers have better wages and benefits when they’re unionized. I will stand firm in protecting workers rights to collectively bargain. People of color, women, veterans and other marginalized communities are hit hardest by employer exploitation. We need economic justice which is gender justice and racial justice, it’s creating an economy that works for all of us. I will fight to strengthen The Minnesota Wage Prevention Act to protect our workers.
A holistic public safety approach that involves community-based prevention and law enforcement intervention strategies will keep residents and businesses safe. In addition to state funding of community-based programs, violence intervention and enforcement strategies, I would drive investments in neighborhoods impacted by crime, including housing, business corridors, and green spaces. This type of public safety strategy requires partnership between law enforcement, businesses, and the community

Ballot Freedom: Open ballot access for greater competition and bring ranked choice voting statewide. Police Militarization: Stop military equipment transfer to police, focus enforcement on violent crime, and end qualified immunity for all public servants. Housing Choice: Free the housing market to allow all scales and scopes of development from tiny house neighborhoods, to cutting zoning regulations to grow affordable housing. Reign in rents through reducing burdens on small businesses leasing space and spare room landlords to tap under-occupied housing supply.
safe secure elections are guaranteed by a paper ballot system and the legal oath of voter identity signed on the registration. Nothing more is required to prevent impersonation and fraud. Automatic voter registration options at every registration opportunity (voter, auto, boat, hunting/fishing, etc.) and same-day registration with provisional ballot can ensure that no one eligible is turned away from voting due to paperwork errors or unfounded purging.
School choice expansion and the Page Amendment. Your zip code should not determine your education, so I would encourage the removal of property taxing authority from school districts and fully fund schools using state allocated funds under Constitutional Amendment to guarantee equal access to education and close achievement gaps. The per student funding model has proven capable with public charter schools and should be universal in Minnesota.
Curb the growing compliance burdens that businesses face to hire employees as part-time or full-time. The pandemic has demanded increased flexibility in workplaces and homes, but the state employment rules burden small and large businesses with reporting, tracking, and other employment challenges that make it costly to hiring. By allowing employees and employers to define the terms of their relationship, we can support entrepreneurs, workers, and keep prices down with right-sized staff.
Eliminate victimless crimes from the criminal code to free up police resources to address violent crime, including gun violence. By respecting police time and ending their treatment as social catch-all, we can keep them tied to clearing and closing cases with victims of violence. By enforcing fewer laws and morality crimes, police will become better at serving and protecting people from violent offenders, including those perpetrating violence with guns.
