Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez on Civil Rights

 

 


Defend LGBTQ+ Rights, supports protective laws

Cristina will ensure that full equality for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community is enshrined into federal law by supporting the Equality Act, which would prevent discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity, the Every Child Deserves a Family Act, which will make it illegal for anyone receiving Federal assistance to discriminate against LGBTQ children and families when placing children for adoption and foster care, the Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act, which bans conversion therapy and the Do No Harm Act, which prohibits the use of personal religious beliefs as an excuse to discriminate.

Combat White Supremacy and hate crimes

Cristina recognizes that we need to address the growing threat of violence driven by white supremacy in our communities. No Texan-- and no American-- should ever fear violence because of the color of their skin, the God they pray to, or any other identity they carry. As Senator, Cristina would direct funding to the Department of Justice to investigate hate crimes and treat acts of violence fueled by white supremacy as acts of domestic terrorism.

Pass Voting Rights Advancement Act, make elections a holiday

Some people in power are afraid of democracy. They want a government that serves their interests, not ours, which is why we need to shield our democracy against ongoing voter suppression and international efforts to interfere in our elections. When Cristina goes to Washington one of her top priorities will be to pass the Voting Rights Advancement Act and making election day a national federal holiday so everyone can participate easily and equally in our democracy.

Real democracy a threat to people in power

In 2018, TzintzŁn Ramirez helped lead an initiative through the Texas Youth Power Alliance that registered one in five Texas voters in 2018. She said they saw a 500% increase in the youth vote, and a 250% increase in the Latino vote. "I know real democracy will be a threat to people in power," TzintzŁn Ramirez said. "We are going to get more young people, more people of color out to vote, more low income people, and that's how we build a democracy, an economy and a country for everyone."
