On the Issues
America is facing a grave health emergency with a serious impact on our economy. We need legislation that will bring urgently needed relief to families and small businesses across the country. In Congress, Donald will support bold, pro-worker action like the CARES and HEROES Acts to protect the health and well-being of every American.
Reducing Inequities in Education
Donald understands that good schools prepare children for lifelong success. Donald will work towards universal access to pre-K education and affordable, high-quality childcare options. He will also seek overdue investments in our public schools, ensuring that teachers have the resources and support they need to close achievement gaps and best help our children.
Fighting for the Rights of All Virginians
For his entire career, Donald has been fighting for all Virginians–immigrants, people of color, people with disabilities, and members of the LBGTQ+ community. Across our country, Americans are rising up because the deep-seated racial disparities in communities across America are far from resolved. Donald will continue to fight to end police violence, reform our criminal justice system, and eliminate housing discrimination.
Donald believes that affordable healthcare is a human right. He’ll continue to push for reforms that improve and strengthen the Affordable Care Act and seek new incentives for states to expand Medicaid. He opposes any effort to replace Medicare with a voucher system, block grant Medicaid, or shift the cost to working families.
Protecting Our Environment
Donald is a stand out leader in the movement to protect our environment. During his first term in Congress, he co-founded the United for Climate and Environmental Justice Congressional Task Force, which he continues to lead. He will continue to advocate for the Environmental Justice for All Act, which will expand the National Environmental Policy Act and introduce new fees on oil, gas, and coal to fund communities transitioning away from fossil fuel economies.
