Life, Liberty, Equality, Justice and the Pursuit of Happiness
I was raised to stand up for justice and equality. I was raised to fight injustice wherever it occurs.
I believe in listening FIRST and learning MORE.
I believe that everyone should enjoy equal rights.
I believe in everyone's access to justice, education, equality under the law, healthcare, a sustainable living wage, and a healthy environment.
I believe in taking a stand. Whether it is through storytelling, education, voting, putting my body on the line or taking my voice to the streets, I aim to stand up for these beliefs whenever possible.
DEATH PENALTY & CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM REFORM:
Currently, my advocacy is focused on capital murder cases, wrongful convictions, and the abolition of the death penalty.
I have been a proud ally on the journey towards full equality for the LGBTQIA community. I have worked with Queer Rising in New York and GetEQUAL, on a national level, to address such issues as Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal, ENDA, marriage equality, resources for homeless queer youth, etc.
I remain committed in my view that all people should be equal, and I fight discrimination, to the best of my ability, whenever and wherever I encounter it.
I am a registered/licensed officiant and am available to officiate any nuptials.
