Anyone watching what’s happening in Washington, D.C. is right to be horrified. To see children wrenched from their parents, attacks on the LGBTQ community, health care being destroyed, a woman’s right to choose threatened, investments in public education cut, spending for seniors reduced, and more.
Here in the Commonwealth, the Massachusetts Legislature can and must defend against these attacks and lead the nation in advancing civil and human rights.
I am committed to making sure our state government uses its power and influence to promote justice and expand equality for everyone.
