Protect the progress made by the Affordable Care Act and fight to implement Medicare for All. Health care is a right.

Bridging the income divide by raising the federal minimum wage to $15/hr, creating workforce training programs, empowering unions, pushing for paid family leave and universal childcare Support the Select Committee designated to develop the Green New Deal with a program-based approach and workforce training, encourage and create new programs to develop renewable energy projects, banning ethylene oxide (EtO), rebuilding the EPA, and creating green infrastructure projects Bringing a new vision to transportation in IL03 and the nation, finally addressing crumbling bridges and roads. We need to address transportation deserts in-district and expand public transportation from Bridgeport to Joliet.

Let’s Elect a Real Democrat in IL03!

The only Democrat in Congress who does not support LGBTQ equality

Called President Trump a “future champion” of immigration reform
