Tackling Climate, Equality and Immigration
Equality for All
I am a firm believer in ensuring equality for all people and stopping any form of discrimination in its tracks. That’s why I will be an advocate for women’s rights, and an ally of the LGBTQ+ community and will work to advance policies that prevent discrimination and ensure a more just, fair, and equitable California. I will also work to make certain that equal pay for equal work for women and men is a reality in our state.
Standing Up For Immigrants
We need nationwide, comprehensive immigration reform, and we need it NOW. Too many are still living in the shadows as undocumented individuals who have been living here, working here, while raising and growing a family here. By every measurement, these people are Americans and it’s far past time they are given a pathway to becoming full citizens. In the State Assembly, I will do everything in my power to protect immigrant communities, their rights, and also I’ll be relentless in my advocacy for compassionate immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship.
Environment and Climate Change
The debate about climate change is over. It’s here, it’s happening, and we as a state, a nation, and as humanity overall, must do more to tackle it. In the State Assembly, I’ll work to protect our environment and address climate change, while safeguarding clean air and clean water for our communities. I believe we can protect and create good jobs, and simultaneously ensure a cleaner, safer environment for all Californians if we all work together.
Too many people in our state are struggling because of our aging or non-existent infrastructure. That’s why in the State Assembly, I will work to invest more in infrastructure, from upgrading and expanding mass transit to universal broadband to clean energy technologies, modernizing our transportation hubs, streets and bridges and more. These investments will not only help ensure the long-term competitiveness of our economy and level the playing field for so many disadvantaged communities, but it will also create countless good paying jobs.
Together, let's make South LA an even better place to live, work, and thrive!
