DIGNITY AND RESPECT FOR WOMEN 

"Donald Trump and Republicans in Lansing and Washington will stop at nothing to roll back the clock on women’s healthcare. They also refuse to ensure that a women are paid the same wages as men for doing the same job. I’ll be a State Representative that trusts women to make their own healthcare decisions and fights for equal pay for equal work!" - Ethan

  • Protect a woman’s right to choose by repealing legislation that restricts women’s reproductive healthcare and passing the Michigan Reproductive Health Act which, among other things, repeals a 1931 law that bans all abortion in Michigan. Right now, if the conservative majority on the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, our state would revert back to existing laws (ie. the 1931 law) unless it is repealed. 

  • Funding family planning services like Planned Parenthood.

  • Adopt Equal Pay for Equal Work for women because without changes to law, the gender wage gap in Michigan isn’t expected to close until 2084--that is simply unacceptable. We can pass commonsense legislation to close the wage gap by prohibiting employers from inquiring about an applicants' pay history, penalizing companies that pay different wages to similarly situated men and women, prohibit employers from penalizing employees who discuss wage information, and require employers provide generic wage information for similarly situated employees. 

  • Addressing Sexual Assault on campus and including consent in our sexual education curriculum.

    • 1 in 4 women are survivors of sexual assault during college and too often, universities are more interested in protecting their reputation than protecting their students.

    • I support legislation that would create an independent ombudsman on our campuses that specifically handle instances of sexual assault and aggression. This would be different than programs and staff that our campuses may already have because it would be an entity independent of the institution so that helping survivors is always the top priority.

    • Additionally, we need to have more education and discussion about affirmative consent starting in our K-12 sexual education curriculum and continuing for every student enrolled at higher education institutions.

YOUR VOICE MATTERS! I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
