Civil Rights and Social Justice

I believe strongly in the equality and freedom of all people, regardless of race, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation or identity. I have been on the frontlines of the fight for civil rights – from the right to fair pay to the freedom to marry. And I will carry that fight to the City Council.

We didn’t have much growing up. But we had what truly mattered — a loving family, a commitment to education and a faith in a better day. Where I come from leaves me determined that no child in a country of our wealth – in a city with our blessings — should grow up wanting. I share the belief expressed by Robert Kennedy: as long as there is plenty, poverty is evil.

 

Derechos civiles y justicia social

Creo totalmente en la igualdad y libertad de todas las personas, a pesar de sucolor de piel, religión, género, incapacidad, orientación sexual o identidadsexual. He estado en el frente del combate para los derechos civiles—de la causa correcta para dejarles a todosla libertad de casarse. Y llevaré ese combate al consejo.

Mi familia no tuvo mucho cuando era joven. Pero tuvimos lo que importó sinceramente—una familia amorosa, un compromiso a la educación y una fe en undía mejor. Comparto la creencia expresada por Robert Kennedy: siempre que haya abundancia, la pobreza es una maldad.
