Civil and Voting Rights

Civil and Voting Rights

In the United States of America, everyone should be able to live without fear of discrimination. Period. I am committed to working against all forms of discrimination, including in housing and employment. This freedom includes a guarantee of equal pay for equal work. As a former U.S. Attorney, I also know all too well that we need to make common-sense reforms to our criminal justice system.

One of the special hallmarks of our democratic society is the right to vote in free and fair elections, and I am dedicated to protecting each individual’s right to participate fully in the electoral process. That’s why I cosponsored legislation that targets practices known to suppress voting. I’m also co-sponsoring legislation to prohibit the communication of false information with the intent to prevent or interfere with another’s right to vote.
