Climate Change and the Environment

The consensus view of scientists about the impact that climate change poses to our planet is alarming.

Gun Violence

36,000 Americans are killed by guns every year: equivalent to the population of many Ohio cities. We as a nation have become numb to that statistic. We must do more to close loopholes and advance sensible gun reform legislation.

We are a nation of immigrants. As such, we need an immigration system that reflects those values, one that is humane and grounded in common sense and accountability. We cannot separate families, lock refugees in cages, or deny children access to food, water, or necessities.

Jobs and the Economy

America is strongest when we have a robust and thriving economy coupled with access to good-paying jobs.

Working Families and Children

We all have a responsibility to support the most vulnerable among us, which is why I’ve spent my time in Congress fighting for families. This includes supporting bills to institute paid family leave, expand the child tax credit, and provide child care for working families, because these kinds of programs are investments in the future stability of our country.
