Civil Rights

I support policies that honor an individual's right and capacity to decide what is best for themselves. I believe in an inclusive society that protects everyone's rights, and one where Americans have the right to be free of discriminatory treatment because of their race, religion, gender, political beliefs or other labels. Furthermore, I know there is no personal freedom without privacy and we should, therefore, be free from unwarranted searches, detentions, seizures and mass secret surveillance.

I Support:

  • Strong defense of the U.S. Constitution
  • The right to purchase and bear arms by competent and law abiding citizens following an adequate background check
  • Oregon Death with Dignity (assisted suicide) legislation
  • Workers’ rights to organize and bargain collectively
