We challenged business as usual, built people power, and moved the conversation forward. Thank you to the following organizations and people who endorsed my campaign: The Vermont Progressive Party, Vermont Sate Reps. Tristan Toleno (D-Brattleboro) and Mollie S. Burke (D/P-Brattleboro), Burlington City Councilors Joe Magee and Gene Bergman, 2018 congressional candidate Dr. Dan Freilich, and current and former elected officials across Vermont!
We need a new voice in government because the system is not working for most people. We need a leader who will step out in front of the challenges facing our country and lead—not just when it’s easy, but all the time. As a Vermont activist, community builder, and national leader, taking up the hard fight is what I have always done, and is exactly what I will do in office.
The climate crisis, violence, racism, and addiction, are real problems. We must protect our communities now while we address the root causes of these threats. Business as usual will not get us there. I've been organizing strategic protests across the country – and winning.
It's hard for many of our neighbors to save for the future. Let’s create a more fair tax system, expand the Child Tax Credit, protect social security and veterans' benefits, respect the human right to housing and healthcare, and fight for a $15/hour minimum wage – for all.
I led the campaign for student seats on the Vermont State Board of Education and became the first high school student with a vote on that board. We must protect the right to vote for all Americans, hold our leaders accountable, and limit big business' influence.
