Housing should be a right, not a luxury. I will support policies to increase affordable housing options and combat homelessness in New Jersey.
Healthcare is a human right. I will fight for accessible and affordable healthcare for all residents of New Jersey. This includes working towards a universal healthcare system and improving access to mental health services.
Mental health is a critical issue that often goes overlooked. I will advocate for increased funding for mental health services and programs, especially in our schools. Early intervention and access to mental health care are essential for the well-being of our residents. I'll work to reduce the stigma around mental health and ensure that everyone has access to the support they need.
Every child in New Jersey deserves a quality education. I will advocate for increased funding for public schools, reducing the burden of student debt, and expanding access to vocational training and higher education.
I am committed to addressing income inequality. This includes raising the minimum wage, supporting small businesses, and creating economic opportunities for all, particularly in underserved communities.
We must take bold steps to combat climate change. I support initiatives such as transitioning to clean energy sources, investing in green infrastructure, and protecting our natural resources.
Our justice system needs reform. I will work to eliminate racial disparities in the criminal justice system, advocate for alternatives to incarceration, and focus on rehabilitation and community-based solutions.
As a veteran myself, I understand the unique challenges veterans face. I will work to expand access to healthcare, mental health services, and educational opportunities for veterans.
Small businesses are the backbone of our communities. I will work to provide resources and reduce bureaucratic barriers for small business owners.
I stand firmly in support of reproductive freedom. I believe that individuals should have the right to make decisions about their own bodies, including the right to access safe and legal abortion care. I'll work to protect and expand reproductive rights in New Jersey.
I will work to ensure that LGBTQ+ individuals are protected from discrimination in all areas of life, including employment, housing, and public accommodations. I support updating and strengthening anti-discrimination laws to provide comprehensive protections for LGBTQ+ people.
New Jersey has already taken steps to address gun violence, but there's more work to be done. I will support common-sense gun safety measures, such as universal background checks, closing the gun show loophole, and implementing waiting periods for firearm purchases. We need to prioritize the safety of our communities and protect our children.
I believe in the power of community. I will actively engage with residents, listen to their concerns, and involve them in the decision-making process.
