David has worked to protect people in Florida from abuse for more than 30 years and believes that no one should be denied any rights or protection because of their race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. We need to live the words of our founding documents, “that all men (and women) are created equal.” In the last century, we have made tremendous progress toward eliminating discrimination and ensuring that we are all treated equally under the law. Unfortunately, in recent years we have seen a regression of those rights in too many communities. David knows that LGBTQ couples should never be denied any of the rights that all married couples are given, women should receive equal pay for equal work, as well as feel safe from sexual abuse, and regardless of religion, our neighbors should feel free to worship without fear of discrimination.
As your Congressman, David will fight to make sure everyone will be protected equally under the law. That means adding LGBTQ Americans to the groups protected by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and fighting to end the divide between races and religions. Finally, David will continue to protect women’s access to basic health care through Planned Parenthood, including a woman’s right to make decisions about her healthcare without interference from politicians in Washington.
