Access to Healthcare
Michelle will fight to ensure that every Illinoisan, especially those with pre-existing conditions, has access to affordable healthcare. This includes protecting essential health services that support our local families like mental health care, elder care, and hospital services.
Climate Change is reaching crisis levels. Michelle supports the Clean Energy Jobs Act, which commits Illinois to 100% renewable energy by 2050, cuts carbon from the power sector by 2030, reduces gas and diesel vehicles from the transportation sector, and creates jobs and economic opportunity.
Education is the foundation of our community, ensuring a successful, thriving future and the well-being of our children. From early learning to our colleges and universities, Michelle will fight for fully funded education.
Michelle recognizes that we need to take action to stop corruption and special interests from influencing elected officials. She will work to pass legislation that will increase transparency and close the revolving door between elected office and lobbying.
Gun Violence Prevention
A majority of gun owners and non-gun owners alike favor sensible gun safety measures to save lives. I will advocate for common sense, evidence-based gun violence prevention measures that will save lives in Illinois. This includes working to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families, and encouraging a culture of responsible gun ownership.
People of the 37th need to know that the safety and usability of our roads, highways, bridges, and buildings are being taken care of. Michelle will not only make sure top standards are being met for our infrastructure, but that they are updated to the best materials to ensure longevity, sustainability, and improved value for our communities and local property values.
Michelle will advocate for tax relief for middle-class families by supporting progressive tax structures. She will also fight to make sure the state is properly funding our local schools, a critical first step toward real property tax relief.
Women's Health, Equality, & Autonomy
Michelle has been a life-long champion for women's rights and is committed to fighting for gender equality. This includes protecting women's access to the full range of health care choices available, equal pay, family leave, domestic violence and sexual assault prevention and treatment.
Working Middle Class & Unions
Michelle knows firsthand the need to take back our economy and restore the basic contract with the middle class by maintaining an honest living wage and prioritizing Illinois workers over corporations. Michelle recognizes strong unions are critical to ensuring basic worker rights and healthy wages are not written off in pursuit of the highest profit margins.
