Climate Change:  there is a critical need to implement policy that considers the best interests and wellbeing of future generations.

Women’s Rights

Total Equality:  females require equitable, fair and proper rights.  Until women attain the same rights as men, the American society cannot progress toward impartiality.

Immigration Policy

Migrant Rights and Humane Treatment:  asylum seeker policy reform needs a comprehensive analysis that compassionately results in humane treatment.

Housing Policy

Affordable Housing Policy:  combating the affordable housing crisis will require the legislative branch to advocate, promote and pass policy that legally makes housing affordable for all.  This can be accomplished by placing limits on rent in correlation to the number of bedrooms for a given unit.

Criminal Justice Policy

Reentry into Society from Institutions:  expungement advocacy and broadening the scope of offenses that qualify for expungement, after an individual has paid their debt to society, have many positive direct and indirect outcomes.  They include but are not limited to second chance opportunity, reduction in crime and poverty, job growth, and a lower recidivism rate.

Federally Elected Officials Benefits and Fundraising

Healthcare Benefits

Officials serving in either the U.S. Senate or U.S. House of Representatives should have the same limits on access to healthcare as the American public.  Elected official must not be able to decide healthcare policy while remaining exempt from policy impacts.

Campaign Fundraising Reform

Campaign finance reform options:

(1) Federal government funds campaigns equally;

(2) Federal government caps campaign fundraising amounts; 

or

(3) Federal government matches funds for candidates who do not raise as much as competitors.


Reform would mitigate corporate and wealthy pay-to-play practices, allow for candidates to truly run on their platforms, and Americans could select candidates based on issues and not popularity.
