CIVIL RIGHTS

Just as Massachusetts was first — from public education, to integrating courts and churches, to enacting marriage equality — we must remain a leader to the nation for protecting equal rights and demanding justice for all. This means firmly enforcing equal services and non-discrimination especially in jobs and housing, regardless of race, age, religion, sex, gender-identity or sexual orientation. Our leaders work harder when more people vote and elections are competitive. We need competitive, non-gerrymandered districts drawn by a non-partisan commission and validated by mathematics. We must eliminate regressive barriers to voting.

I will:

  • Support expanding early voting
  • Support implementing automatic voter registration
  • Support utilizing Ranked Choice Voting, which allows more progressive candidates to run without splitting the progressive vote or “spoiling” elections
