Equal Rights Amendments are needed to ensure people from all walks of life have protections under the law.
We need to get rid of Right to Work laws. They are misnamed and give the power to companies rather than an equal balance between employer/employee. Equal Rights Amendments are needed to ensure people from all walks of life have protections under the law.
This is why I want to work to
Pass Equal Rights Act
I will fight for the rights of women to receive equal pay for an equal job, and for women to have full rights to their own healthcare decisions.
Ensure ADA Compliance
I am studying the needs of the disability community and the Americans with Disabilities Act to learn from those active in those communities for their insights and feedback. I’m concerned about equal and fair treatment and ADA compliance for people with disabilities. We need an oversight board (guidance provided in the ADA) to ensure citizens have a place to lodge complaints about organizations that are not complying with ADA policies and regulations.
Provide Protections for LGBT Community and Gender Identity
Many states still have no LGBT or gender identity protections ensuring they have rights under the law for housing, work environment and use of public facilities. In many workplaces, you can still discriminate against or have no sexual harassment protections for sexuality or gender identity.
