America was founded on the ideals of liberty, equality, and justice and has been a beacon to the rest of the world for over 240 years. However, the Founding Fathers did not include women and black people in these noble beginnings and thus America has failed to keep its promises to all of its citizens. Until we reconcile the injustice of our foundation and ways it permeates our society, we cannot truly have individual freedom, self-determination, and equality for all.
That is why I will fight for equal rights and opportunities for ALL Americans including but not limited to: women, the LGBTQ+ community, religious minorities, people with disabilities, black and brown people, & Native Americans. I will confront the ignorance and hate I see, both in the halls of Congress and in our own community here in El Paso County.
