I will fight for:
We have a two tiered criminal justice system. We need to end the racist and classist punitive measures that have pointlessly locked up so many Delawareans, and we must hold the police accountable for violence in our communities.

Housing and Tenants' Rights
The housing crisis has made home ownership unaffordable to most and sent rent prices skyrocketing. Housing is a human right. I support giving every Delawarean a realistic option to own a home and I support measures to control rent and a tenants’ right to counsel during eviction, which my opponent does not.
As a mother, I have seen firsthand how our schools are letting our Delaware youth down. Well-rounded education is a privilege of the wealthy while the poor and marginalized are left to languish. We need a safe education system that is funded according to the needs of all children, from Pre-K through higher education, and not according to property value.
The overturning of Roe vs Wade by the Supreme Court is an attack on women everywhere. While the right to abortion is codified in Delaware law, not all who need abortion are able to access it. Abortion is healthcare, and Medicaid must cover it.
Legalization of Recreational Cannabis
Not only are most Delawareans in favor of legalization, but it would create jobs, drive down enforcement costs, and boost Delaware’s economy. Additionally, enforcement of cannabis prohibition is racist, because people of color are disproportionately targeted. I would vote to override the governor’s veto.
Medical & Mental Healthcare
I want to ensure that all who are in need of healthcare have the ability to receive it without stigma or red tape. Delaware deserves a statewide public option for healthcare.
Delaware is the country’s lowest lying state, and the effects of climate change will be catastrophic. Marginalized communities will feel the impact in much more severity than wealthier areas. We need a representative who acknowledges the threat of ecological collapse, rather than one who sides with Republicans to block necessary environmental legislation.
