Issue Position: Reforming Our Justice System

Jan. 1, 2018

I believe we can end mass incarceration and divert critical funds from overcrowded jails to underfunded schools. I believe we can address the disparities in arrest and incarceration rates and help those who have served their time reenter society. As an activist, I've advocated for reform, and as your State Delegate, I'll work to: End mass incarceration and reinvest in our communitiesReinvesting in our communities and ending mass incarcerationEnd money bail and the exploitation of the poorEarmark funds for anti-recidivism initiatives.Sentencing reform.

Issue Position: Fighting Climate Change

Jan. 1, 2018

We cannot leave the next generation a planet that is damaged. Climate change is a real and urgent threat. Maintaining clean water sources, building a clean energy economy, protecting and restoring precious natural resources such as the Chesapeake Bay will be among my priorities as your voice in Annapolis. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing investments in renewable energy, green jobs, as well as other energy efficiency initiatives, we can position Maryland to be a leader in the nation. As your State Delegate, I'm committed to fighting for our environment, clean air, and a sustainable future.

Issue Position: Economic Justice

Jan. 1, 2018

The level of economic inequality in the United States is alarming. Workers' wages have stagnated for years and the right of workers to organize and collectively bargain have been under attack. In light of the national debate about how to address growing economic inequality, it's important for us to look at what we know works: labor unions built our middle class and continue to fight for economic justice for working families. Forming a union and addressing wages through the collective bargaining process is one of the best ways to raise workers' pay. Too many Marylanders are working for poverty wages and struggling to put food on the table, or pay for a child's education. No one who works full-time should live in poverty and as your State Delegate, I'll support raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour to give hard working families the relief they need. Further, I'll work to expand the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), one of the most effective anti-poverty programs to ensure that Marylanders struggling to make ends meet get the hand up they need.
