My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fighting climate change/ holding electeds accountable for their actions related to the climate crisis.
  • Pushing back against displacement and gentrification in our communities by working to elect people who will demand more renter protections, building of more affordable housing, fighting for a living wage, and improving social safety nets.
  • Ensuring that there are many different voices at the table when our Democratic party is making decisions/ be a representative for the youth, women, LGBTQIA+ folks, and the working class on the Central Committee.
