Issues

It’s time for new leadership and fresh ideas. We can chart a new, progressive path to a brighter future. We can harness Miami’s entrepreneurship and dynamism to create next-generation jobs. We can dispense with politics-as-usual and bring an innovative approach to solving problems that is grounded in common sense, the strength of our diversity, and the ideas of people like you.

The Courage to Fight Gun Violence

For too long, our politicians have been silent about the rampant gun violence tearing families apart every day in America. It’s time we muster the courage to stand up to the NRA. In Congress, I will be a bold advocate for gun safety solutions that work towards ending gun violence in our communities.

People Not PACs

Corporate and special interest PACs (political action committees) are mailing checks into D.C. to purchase outcomes on votes. That’s why D.C. is dysfunctional, that’s why voters don’t trust their elected officials, and it’s why I won’t accept a dime from PACs.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform Can’t Wait

Regressive immigration policies like the ones proposed by Donald Trump, and the failure of this Congress to protect Dreamers make it difficult for Miami to live up to its full potential.

We need politicians from both parties to put politics aside and offer real common sense solutions to safeguard our coastal communities. Every day we delay, we risk irreparable damage to our economy, we discourage enterprise and long-term investment, and we make our South Florida community less safe.

Investing in Education

A quality education is the best way to level the playing field and ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed in America. We can do this by investing in early childhood education, strengthening our public schools, expanding vocational and trade schools, reining the for-profit education industry, and making higher education more affordable for everyone. But we also also have to embrace new and innovative ideas that will allow our young people -- and current workforce -- to transition into a 21st century economy.

Smart Solutions to End Traffic and Create Opportunity

In Congress, I will work closely with partners at the local, state, and federal levels to ensure we are bringing a comprehensive approach to address traffic congestion and make our community more accessible for everyone. An interconnected transportation system that is frequent, reliable, and safe is critical to growing jobs and our economy and will help close gaps in connectivity to bridge a widening opportunity gap in our community.

Standing up for Women’s Rights

In the era of Donald Trump, women’s rights are under attack everywhere we look: Republicans are working their hardest to restrict a women’s right to choose, to undermine equal pay for equal work, and take us backwards. We cannot and will not go back.

Fighting for LGBT Rights

The LGBTQ community has made great strides in the last few decades, especially since President Obama’s presidency; however, we have already seen the Trump administration take drastic steps to undo our collective progress.

A Fair Criminal Justice System

I believe that the United States is in desperate need of comprehensive criminal justice reform. The U.S. is home to about five percent of the world’s population, but about twenty-five percent of the world’s prison population.
