Policies should be common sense and ensure that hardworking families have healthy and safe places to live, learn, work, worship, and recreate. I am a leader that understands how to serve people out of crisis moving forward into an age of prosperity, ingenuity, and creativity.
I Support Medicare For All
As your Senator, I will fight to ensure Tennesseans going bankrupt from seeking needed Medical Care is a thing of the past. Having experienced that in my own life, I know what it's like to have to suffer through our current system.
I Support The Right To A Fully Funded High Quality Public Education.
Our society demands that we teach our students lifelong learning and skills that will translate to a modern economy. I am a lifelong proponent of funding our education system the same as we do our military in order to promote generations of meaningful success regardless of background or location in Tennessee.
The only way to address climate justice and environmental justice is to commit to addressing pollution. December of 2019, I was the first candidate running for the United States Senate in TN to sign the Green New Deal Pledge.

Some have argued the single most influential Supreme Court decision in our lifetimes has been the overturning of the Citizens United case. This ushered in an era of untold amounts of money being funneled into campaigns from billion-dollar corporations to buy elections.
We should always be the beacon for families looking for better opportunities to find refuge from oppression, tyranny, violence, and prosecution. We should stop criminalizing and splitting up families seeking asylum. Immigration and Foreign policy are intertwined.
