Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
—Robert F. Kennedy
David is honored to have the endorsement of Rhode Island’s labor organizations, and is proud to stand up for our working families. When unions are strong, America is strong, and David will continue to fight in Congress to protect the right to organize, and to ensure living wages and safe working conditions.
Reproductive Justice &
David is proud to have these endorsement of the National Organization for Women (NOW), Planned Parenthood Action, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and the RI Democratic Women’s Caucus because the people behind these organizations understand that reproductive rights are under threat like no other time in our nation’s history. The Republican Party is willing to go to extremes to prevent women from accessing safe abortion and life-saving healthcare. They are determined to undo the last 50 years of progress. David is proud to join these groups in fighting back against Republican overreach.
Rhode Island is an incredibly special place to call home. Our coastlines and abundant natural resources require steadfast stewardship so that generations to come will be able to enjoy these national treasures. David is honored to have the endorsement of both Clean Water Action Rhode Island and the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund. David will continue fighting in Congress to address climate change, protect our environment, and advance green energy.
Gun Violence Prevention
Gun violence in our country is an epidemic. Children shouldn’t be afraid to go to school. Places of worship shouldn’t need security checkpoints. We need to take action now to combat the violence in our county. This shouldn’t be controversial. Without it, we will continue to witness mass shootings and senseless loss. David is incredibly proud to have the endorsements of RI Coalition Against Gun Violence, Brady: United Against Gun Violence, Giffords: Courage to End Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, and Newtown Action Alliance – organizations committed to reducing gun violence in our country through commonsense solutions, and he looks forward to continuing to work with them to pass important gun safety measures.
David is grateful for the support of the National Committee to Support Social Security and Medicare and the Alliance for Retired Americans. House Republicans have made it clear that Social Security and Medicare will not be safe if they take back control of Congress. Our seniors worked hard on the promise that these programs would be there for them when they retired, and David will continue to not only defend Social Security and Medicare, but strengthen them and make sure benefits keep up with costs. At a time when Rhode Islanders are feeling the pain of rising prices, it is reckless and unacceptable that the Republican agenda would actually add even greater costs for older Rhode Islanders.
Pro-Democratic Rights Organizations
Our fundamental democratic rights as Americans are under attack by today’s Republican Party. Rights as fundamental as our right to vote or to live openly as we truly are. These are the foundational concepts of our nation, and I will resist any attempt to roll back these efforts to strip Americans of their voice and essential protections. I’m honored to be supported by organizations dedicated to ensuring that LGBTQ+ Americans have equal treatment under the law and that every vote counts.
