Why I want to fight for you. I believe in family values. The family values I believe in are respect and justice for all, Medicare for All, racial justice, equal rights for women and LGBTQ rights. I will fight to end family separation of immigrants and for a living wage for all Americans. I will fight for policies that stop or reverse our Climate Emergency. America and Oregon need to be prepared to save our planet and environment for our children and grandchildren. I am an Independent thinker and will fight for these family values as a Democrat for Oregon Congressional District 2.
