Women's Rights are on the ballot in 2023: Your Freedom, Your Choice, Your Vote
Our team, along with every other down-ballot candidate endorsed by our campaign, is committed to preserving the tenets of American freedom— liberty, equality, and the right to privacy. In a society that is truly free, government has no place to intrude into the intimate decisions made between a woman and her healthcare provider—or the choices she makes about her personal life. We are committed to upholding these bedrocks of American freedom, ensuring that the government stays out of personal choices, from reproductive health to the option of leaving an unwanted marriage. We believe that the America we love and fight for is one where you have the liberty to make your own decisions about your body, your health, your relationships, and your future.
Roe, Roe, Roe Your Vote
A Broken Promise
Roe v. Wade stood as a beacon of freedom for women's reproductive choice in America and the right to privacy and bodily autonomy. Yet, recent Supreme Court decisions like Dobbs v. Jackson have all but destroyed that light, eroding nearly a half-century of progress. This isn't just an attack on women; it's an assault on fundamental personal freedoms. And the toll is heaviest on marginalized communities—low-income individuals, women of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ people.
Make no mistake: this fight isn't only about a woman's right to choose. It's part of a larger, coordinated assault on personal liberties, ranging from access to contraception, reproductive healthcare, to threats against no-fault divorce laws that empower women in their relationships. It even extends to the right to love freely, and for some, the very right to exist as they are.
Without federal protections, 26 states have already either banned or are on the verge of banning the right to choose, affecting 36 million women in these jurisdictions. And it doesn't stop there. Attacks on contraceptive access and the right to leave an unwanted marriage are becoming alarmingly frequent, signaling a society increasingly willing to strip women of their agency and bodily autonomy.
This is why elections matter – all elections. New Jersey has some of the best protections in the country, but these are not enshrined in our state constitution and the reality is that we may be only two elections from becoming an extremist Republican led state. This is clear from the last election where our governor only barely kept his seat against an extremist Republican.
My Assembly running mates Joe Atura, Sally Collins, and I are committed to enshrining equality and reproductive rights into our NJ State Constitution and will openly champion women's rights and equality at every opportunity. Help us win this election through voting, donating, volunteering, and, most crucially, amplifying our message and the dangers of complacency.
But this struggle is bigger than Joe, Sally, or myself—and it extends beyond our state. So, please join us in the broader mission to safeguard our fundamental freedoms. Here's how you can contribute:
Know your candidates—from the U.S. President down to the school board—and vote in every election, big or small.
The fight to strip women of their hard-won rights is a long one in the making, backed by hundreds of millions of dollars and meticulously organized on both a national and local scale. The only pathway forward is to be equally zealous and fight like our freedom depends on it—because it does.
