Strong Public Education
A strong public education system is key to ensuring our young people have paths to opportunity. It is the responsibility of the state to partner with local communities to find solutions to the problems we face. Tackling facility and funding deficits, investing in Pre-K programs and increasing teacher pay are key priorities.
Criminal Justice Reform
Recent efforts by the Texas House to reduce first-time low-level drug offenses to civil penalties are a step in the right direction, but there’s more work to do. We have an obligation to invest in education, training programs, and mental health treatment, to break the cycle of incarceration for first-time and non-violent offenders.
Healthcare is a basic human right, not a privilege afforded only to those who can afford it. Texas is home to one of the highest rates of maternal mortality, especially among women of color and those who are socio-economically disadvantaged. Expanding Medicaid will help millions of Texans who urgently need access to high-quality healthcare.
The only way we will flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak is if we work together. Please, wear a mask, stay home, and do your part to help us beat this pandemic.
