Economic Justice

I have been in the shoes of thousands of Californians struggling to make ends meet — I was unhoused, raising two boys on my own; I relied on public assistance while working and attending public college.

Working class Californians are struggling to feed their families and heat their homes, while corporate profits are at a 70-year-high. We pay $6 dollars for a gallon of gas, while the biggest oil companies in America are spending more than $70 billion dollars to buy back their own stock and increase dividends to their shareholders. 

That’s why I have spent my career fighting for an economy that works for everyone — working people, people of color — not just the wealthy few:

Expanding Benefits 

Making Corporations and 1% Pay Their Fair Share 

Fight for Living Wages

I stand in opposition to free trade agreements that reward corporations for moving manufacturing jobs overseas and cracking down on the outsourcing of jobs to low-wage countries. I will continue to advocate for provisions that ensure job creation in California.

Reprioritizing Federal Dollars
