2020 further emphasized the scale of injustice across the United States, whether it was violence against Black Americans, attacks on voting rights, or disparities that were underscored by the COVID-19 pandemic.
I was proud to march shoulder to shoulder in the streets of Milwaukee after Jacob Blake was shot and proud to back up the Bucks players who protested on the court bringing needed national attention to this issue.
I am committed to passing legislation that furthers racial justice, equity, and harassment free places not only in Wisconsin but across the United States. People of color are disproportionately marginalized by the systemic racism ingrained in our society. Systemic racism can be seen everywhere from policing practices to environmental impacts on communities of color to housing and employment discrimination. As the next Senator from Wisconsin, I will prioritize racial and social justice, and ensure that we are creating economic opportunities for everyone, regardless of where they live or what they look like.
