SUPPORTING WORKING FAMILIES
Whether it's affordable childcare, high-quality public education, affordable housing, or a functioning MBTA, Massachusetts' working families have unique needs. As a mom of two young kids, I live that reality every day.
My constituents sent me to Beacon Hill to fight for Massachusetts' families. Since day one of office, I have been an advocate for universal pre-kindergarten for Massachusetts families as well as full-day kindergarten, a sorely needed program for our communities' working families.
The COVID-19 pandemic further weakened our social infrastructure that is letting far too many Bay Staters slip through the cracks. I have fought against service cuts to the MBTA, advocated for economic relief for childcare facilities and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and supported moratoriums on evictions and foreclosures because no family deserves to be unhoused during a global pandemic.
Making a Massachusetts that is affordable and accessible to all requires bold action and forward-thinking solutions. That is why I advocate for progressive taxation every session, so the wealthiest Bay Staters pay their fair share to drive the initiatives supporting our Commonwealth's working families.
