In Her Own Words


“We are at a dangerous moment in time. Anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world and here at home, and the memory of the Holocaust is fading for far too many Americans. We can combat this by making sure we teach our students, tomorrow's leaders, about the horrors of the Holocaust.” 1 

 

"The Trump Administration is the most anti-woman administration of my life time and this misogynistic attempt to take away women's healthcare is more proof of that. The Trump-Pence anti-woman, anti-choice agenda is a direct threat to women's wellbeing and their right to make decisions about their healthcare, including reproductive healthcare." 2
