The continuous right-wing assault on women's rights in Congress should be cause for alarm for all American families. Providing women with access to reproductive health care, passing legislation like the Paycheck Fairness Act to make sure that women are compensated at the same rate as their male counterparts in the workplace, and protecting women from sexual violence and domestic abuse are not Democratic or Republican priorities -- they are American priorities.

Likewise, we continue to see efforts by right-wing extremists to restrict ballot access to people of color and deny members of the LGBT community basic civil rights. These tactics are antithetical to our nation's core values of liberty and equality, and I will fight in Congress to make sure that all Americans -- regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation -- are afforded the same protections under the law.
