Civil Rights

America was built by diverse individuals and ideas, and we must work to ensure that federal policies reflect that reality. I believe our government should ensure that all Americans are treated fairly, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, disability, sex, or identity. I was proud to vote for the Equality Act, a landmark bill that ensures federal protection from discrimination based on sex and gender identity for all Americans. I also voted for the Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure worker protections regarding wages.  
As Vice Chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus and a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus, I will continue to work to achieve pay equity, universal access to quality health care, strong protections against discrimination, respect for human rights at home and across the globe, all while uplifting the extraordinary contributions of women and minorities.
