In a country this rich, there shouldn’t be a single person who’s hungry, homeless, without healthcare, or in poverty.

Yet decade after decade these injustices persist. Why? Because of Republicans and the Democrats who enable them. Democrats like Joe Manchin and my opponent Derek Kilmer, who keep making nice with Republicans as our rights get trampled.

Seniors are scraping together pennies to afford their prescriptions, young families are doubling up with relatives because they can’t afford rent, retirees are working in Amazon warehouses, and teachers are driving for Uber as a second job.

It’s 2021 and children are still in cages, 1 in 6 kids are still going hungry, 68,000 Americans die because they can’t afford healthcare every year, nearly half the country is poor or low-income, 550,000 people are homeless, and 10 million renters face looming eviction.

I’m tired of waiting for the corporate establishment to help us.

That’s why I’ve been taking direct action.

I want to help end homelessness, and since last August, I’ve been on the ground doing community organizing, including occupying empty buildings to get more housing for homeless people in Tacoma.

A group of us helped get 200 more shelter beds in Tacoma, we got hygiene stations at a homeless camp, got a temporary shelter extended by two months, and postponed a camping ban (which would have criminalized homelessness). I’m in the community dealing with the problems head-on. And I can do even more in Congress.
