What does your ideal America look like?

Where hard work pays off, but we take care of each other as well. Free health care, free education. Everyone has a fair shot at life. But hard work is rewarded in pay.

What do you feel is holding us back from reaching your ideal America?

No one is willing to compromise to get things done

Is equality a core value in your life?
  • Yes
If yes to the question above, what action steps do you take or have you taken to ensure equality in the U.S. and why?

I try to treat everyone fairly. I raise my daughters to treat everyone fairly and I vote for candidates that are going to be fair and have a heart.

What barriers exist in your life to increasing your involvement?

money is always a barrier. I work a lot.

What role do you think the government should play in race relations?

In an ideal world, none! But we should have leaders that encourage equality.

When you hear black lives matter, what does that mean to you?

I think its sad that it has to be said, but I understand it. I couldnt imagine being a person of african decent or mexican or muslim. When the leaders of the world are hateful, being the hateful speech from our president or how the cops treat black people when they are pulled over. I dont understand hate. I live in a small town in Ohio and there is a lot of racism here. It makes me so sad. But I try to make sure I at least let my girls know we treat everyone as an equal. Becuase that is the way it should be. No matter what. You shouldnt be afraid to walk out your front door. Its a sad world we are living in

The history of progress is written in the blood of men and women who have dared to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man’s right to his body, or woman’s right to her soul. – Emma Goldman
