Gina believes that all Americans should be treated with dignity and respect and should be protected by the U.S. Constitution. For the last six decades, Democrats have had a proud history of defending civil rights by following the rule of law and expanding equal opportunities for all Americans. More needs to be done to secure these rights and to defeat discrimination in all forms.
Women's rights are civil rights. The ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (“ERA”) will ensure that equal rights for women will finally be protected by our Constitution. Gina will fight against gender discrimination and violence against women. Gina believes it is essential to women’s equality that women have the right to control their own reproductive choices.
Turning the clock back on civil rights in any area must be stopped as we are better than that. Gina is a fierce advocate for the civil rights of all people, regardless of color, gender, or faith.
