PAC & Dark Money

My campaign was founded on the mission of working for the people, not corporations. It’s a pledge I made on day one, and since, I have been lucky enough to sign on with the Justice Democrats, Candidates with a Contract, and Move to Amend. Each...

Healthcare

We can move toward Healthcare for All that makes sense for America and keeps America healthy – both physically and economically.

Education

We must work diligently to provide Arizona parents and their children championed schools. To do so, we must provide teachers the tools and resources they need to equip our children for their best future.

Learn More

Separation of Religion and State

We must be free to forge our own futures, to determine our own destinies, and to follow our own faith, including no faith at all. The Constitution enshrines these freedoms as the highest law of the land, and we cannot stand idly by as those claiming to love the Constitution dismantle them.

Net Neutrality

Websites should have equal access from the public and no businesses should determine the lens through which we experience the web.

Learn More

Environmental Protections

Private enterprise is not designed to self-regulate for the betterment of society; it is designed to make money for its owners. Protecting the environment is more important now more than ever. We must do more to ensure a healthy future home for our children.

Gun Rights

It is possible to Support the Second Amendment but also expect gun owners to be responsible and enact restrictions on those who cannot operate weapons responsibly.

Immigration Reform

Deedra is committed to continue her work to defend attacks from the federal government to lock up, break up and ban immigrant families.

An Economy That Works for All Families

Deedra is willing to fight to put Arizona at the nation's forefront, securing the resources and investments needed to deliver progress for the Grand Canyon state.

Our Veterans

Our Veterans deserve to be honored by more than platitudes. They should have better resources when they return home, including support for the emotional and physical tolls they have experienced, without stigmatization.

Learn More

Reproduction

We must vigorously oppose all efforts to dismantle reproductive rights or roll back historic protections for women and our families.

Learn More

LGBTQ

The LGBTQ community and their allies have fought long and hard for equality in Arizona and the United States. Marriage equality is the law of the land but many discrimination laws stop short of actual protection.

Learn More

Right to Protest

The right to peacefully assemble, petition, and redress grievances with the government is within the very first Amendment to the Constitution.

Learn More

Vouchers

Privatization of our public education system is a threat to our very democracy. Neither our children nor their education is a commodity that can be traded on the open market or a boon for corporations more interested in profits than our children’s future.

Learn More

Free Press

The backbone of any democracy is an independent, professional, and responsible media. Their role is to inform, criticize, and stimulate debate.

Learn More

Cannabis

Citizens and states have clearly mandated the desire for cannabis to be an issue better left to the discretion of each individual state.

Learn More

Banking Protections

We must keep bankers out of the stock market to make sure the taxpayers aren't the ones paying when their bets fail.

Learn More

Social Security

Social Security was a promise made by the US government to every citizen of this country many years ago. This promise to the people must be kept.

Learn More

Police

Community policing works. Knowing the community municipalities serve helps decrease crime and de-escalate tensions, and adequate resources need to be provided to local law enforcement to help make this successful.

Learn More

Human Rights & Discrimination

Making all Americans equal is not asking for special privileges, it’s asking for the rule of law - justice and equality for all as outlined in the United States Constitution.

Learn More

Corporate Welfare

Free enterprise works best when it competes in the market with new ideas creating new industries to serve the needs of people that individuals are willing to pay for.

End Unnecessary Wars & Nation Building

Unilateral U.S. military force should only be used as a last resort to defend the nation. The current budget could be cut drastically if we used our department of defense for what it was intended—defending us, instead of waging interventionist wars.

Learn More

Voting Rights

We can increase voter enfranchisement and guard against voter fraud by improving voting technology and modernization of our voter registration system. Various forms of technology are in place in several states that allow voters who don’t have ID to demonstrate identities at polls by other means, much like online banking systems.

Two-State Solution

Few issues are more polarizing than the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and fewer people than ever are willing to step away from their respective “sides” long enough to work toward a peaceful solution. My experiences show that it doesn’t have to be that way.
