Candidate State Representative, 19th District
Prior Governmental Experience: n/a
We’re overdue in taking climate change seriously. We need action NOW to prevent further destruction of our planet and reverse the damage that’s already been done.
Sarah wants better salaries for teachers and more funding, especially in marginalized communities. She will support more programs for underprivileged youth. No one can learn if they don’t feel safe at school and at home.
It’s time to join the rest of the modern world by guaranteeing comprehensive healthcare to EVERYONE. Nobody should have to make the choice between medical care and the rent.
Everyone deserves safe and dignified housing. Sarah will push to end the stigma surrounding homelessness and help our fellow humans.
Sarah wants to return to the values upon which our country was founded. We should welcome those seeking asylum and instate humane immigration laws. Most importantly, under no circumstances should these policies be used to tear families apart.
Sarah will protect people from all forms of discrimination, including sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. She will also push to cover gender-affirming treatments under all health plans.
Sarah will combat institutionalized racism by providing better services to communities of color. She will work to end racist policing and push for prioritization of de-escalation tactics.
REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS AND SEXUAL HEALTH
Everyone has the right to bodily autonomy, without exception. Furthermore, abstinence-only education simply doesn’t work. Sarah will expand sex education resources to better equip adolescents with information.
Sarah supports unions and the rights of workers to collectively bargain for better treatment. She will fight to dismantle ‘right to work’ laws and spread truth about the harm they cause to our entire community.
