In the diverse and vibrant community of Portland, Oregon, we recognize the importance of championing equal rights and protections for all, regardless of someone’s gender identity, race, or sexual orientation. Our campaign, driven by progressive values, is committed to advocating for equal rights and protections for Women, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), and LGBTQ+ individuals.

We stand firmly in support of policies and legislation that promote equality and justice for these historically marginalized communities. Here's why it's crucial:

Empowering Women

LGBTQ+ Equality

Women have made significant strides, yet they continue to face disparities in pay, opportunities, and representation. We are dedicated to closing these gaps and ensuring that every woman has equal access to education, employment, and healthcare.

Racial Equity

The BIPOC community has faced systemic discrimination and inequality for far too long. It's time to dismantle these structures of oppression and create a society where racial equity is a reality. We support policies that address systemic racism and provide opportunities for BIPOC individuals to thrive.

Inclusivity for AlL

LGBTQ+ individuals, like Michael and his husband Andy, deserve to live their lives free from discrimination. We support comprehensive nondiscrimination laws that protect LGBTQ+ rights in all aspects of life, from employment to housing and public accommodations.

Progressive Values

Our campaign believes that inclusivity strengthens our community. We must create a society where everyone, regardless of their background or identity, feels welcome, valued, and respected.

As a progressive democratic candidate, we are proud to stand with those fighting for equal rights and protections. These values are at the core of our campaign's mission.

A Unified Future

Discrimination weakens our society and divides us. By advocating for equal rights and protections, we work towards a united and harmonious future for all residents of our district.

A Just and Inclusive Society

Our vision is a future where Women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ individuals have the same opportunities, rights, and protections as anyone else. This is not just a policy stance; it's a moral obligation.


Our commitment to equal rights and protections for Women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ individuals is unwavering. We will proudly and loudly say “gay and speak out against book bans, bathroom bans, and drag bans. We will talk about the real history (and current state) of race and racism in America. We will remind the public that DEI statements and cultural training, while encouraged, do not translate to self reflection and systematic and institutional change; nor do they establish belonging and true economic justice. Equity requires personal institutional recognition and accountability,  intentional and non performative plans, implementation, and systems maintenance. 

We will speak out against racism, xenophobia, misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia. We will embrace, love, and lift up others. We will work tirelessly to ensure that these communities have the opportunities and protections they deserve. Together, we can create a more just, inclusive, and equitable society where every individual can thrive and contribute to the betterment of our district.

I am committed to comprehensive immigration reform that reflects our progressive values and principles. Our nation was not just built by immigrants, and it's imperative that we create a fair, just, and compassionate immigration system.
