Equal and Fair Treatment For All

return to priorities

As a civil rights lawyer and the mother of two sons who are gay, Betsy knows how important our fundamental rights are, and her mission is to ensure those rights are respected and enforced.

Betsy believes we must…

  • Guarantee that all Americans are treated equally under the law, regardless of their age, race, religion, nationality, disability, gender identity, and sexual orientation
  • Secure equal pay for equal work
  • Ensure that all Americans have access to justice and that our laws are enforced vigorously

Equal opportunity, giving everyone a fair shot at success, is a core value of this country and the basis of its greatness. Our Constitution guarantees this, and our laws need to be clear and beyond dispute on this principle. Women should receive equal pay to men. Everyone should be able to marry the person they love. No one should be discriminated against because of their race, religion, national origin, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation.

Since the last election, we’ve seen supremacists emerge from the shadows, emboldened and taking to our streets. Our nation’s leaders must always speak with a sure and firm voice against hate and discrimination, and back up those words by enforcing laws ensuring that all have access to freedom without fear.

This year women have spoken up and brought to the forefront an important national conversation about sexual harassment and violence in the workplace. We have made progress in awareness and understanding around these serious issues but we must continually work together to foster an environment where people can be heard without retaliation, and can effectively seek and receive justice.

As a civil rights lawyer, Betsy fights for these rights, but the laws in this country are not strong enough, not clear enough, and not enforced adequately. In Congress, Betsy will make sure that equal rights are protected effectively.
