LGBTQ+, Racial Equity, and Women’s RightsFIGHT FOR GENDER, LGBTQ+ AND RACIAL EQUITY & PROTECT A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE As a mom, mentor to other women, and hardworking activist for marriage equality and gender and racial equity, I have dedicated my entire life to public service and fighting for equal rights. I’m proud to have intersectional support in this race, and there is no doubt that I will fight hard for racial and gender equality in policy, government and every aspect of society. We need more protections and more advocates, and we need to empower people from marginalized communities to have a louder voice in our state government. I believe California must lead the way into the future – and that means doubling down on our California values. This starts with never tolerating discrimination and ensuring equal rights for all. Even in 2017, we’re still fighting to protect a woman’s right to choose. We need leaders tough enough to stand up to those who threaten to undermine Roe v. Wade. I will always support our rights as women to have control over our bodies, and to make our own decisions about our health, including having access to safe and legal abortions.
