Equality

Lisa believes deeply in the American ideals of equality, fairness and justice.  She will fight to ensure that all people are treated equally under the law regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Lisa is committed to the protection of individual rights and treating all people with dignity and respect.  This includes protecting the rights of people in the LGBTQ community to legally marry and adopt. Lisa believes that members of the LGBTQ community must be legally protected from discrimination in the workplace and rental market.

Though generations of civil rights activism have led to important gains in legal, political, social, employment, and education arenas, the dream of full equality remains elusive.  Lisa believes that we must continue to educate and empower the public on a variety of issues, including race, as it relates to criminal justice, economic justice, and inequality in education; affirmative action; and Indigenous Americans’ rights.
