Civil Rights and Liberties

Protecting the civil rights and liberties of all individuals is one of the most important responsibilities for Members of Congress, and one that I take seriously. While some are working to turn back the clock and undo much of the progress our country has seen in the past sixty years, I will continue to work diligently against all forms of discrimination whether in the voting booth, workplace, school, or in public accommodations. We must continue to protect the right to vote, ensure that women are able to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions, work towards closing the gender-pay gap, and limit the use of surveillance into the private lives of the American people.
