Safeguarding Justice & Democracy

I’m leading the effort to reform the Supreme Court and make the judicial branch more accountable, with a strong, binding code of ethics at the Supreme Court, term limits for justices, and transparency in judicial lobbying. 

I sponsor legislation to safeguard every American’s right to vote, which is increasingly under attack. I’ve worked with colleagues across the aisle to pass needed reforms to our criminal justice system and legislation to better support law enforcement officers.

It is long past time for Congress to enact common sense gun safety measures like universal background checks and renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons. I’m going to keep fighting for changes to our gun laws until children can go to school without fearing for their lives. The need for “active shooter drills” should shame us all.
