Civil Rights

Everyone deserves to live and work with dignity. However, the reality is that many people are treated differently due to their race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other reasons. As a civil rights attorney, I fight for individuals who face discrimination when they go to work, try to get housing, and attempt to access public accommodations like education. As your representative, I will continue this fight by advocating for policies to protect people from discrimination and hold those who do discriminate accountable. 

Republicans have passed legislation that makes it easier for employers, landlords, or businesses to discriminate based on race, age, religion, or gender in recent years. Until a Supreme Court decision in 2020, it was legal in Missouri for employers to discriminate against employees based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.  As your representative, I will fight against measures that legalize discrimination, for laws protecting oppressed communities, and for a more effective and efficient system for the oppressed to seek justice.
