Kim Schrier on Principles & Values

 

 


When something is wrong in the world, make it a better place

A lot of the reason I'm here in Congress is because I'm a Jewish woman, and that you grow up with an ethic of "tikkun olam." That when something is wrong in the world, it is your job to make it a better place. I saw some really big wrongs in our country: taking health care away from people, xenophobia, Islamophobia, racism. I decided that if I didn't roll up my sleeves to help get our country headed in a better direction, then I couldn't expect anyone else to.

Decided to make first run for office after the 2016 election

Schrier told ABC News, "I am a pediatrician through and through. My life was to take care of children and teenagers and simply retire and then teach.

"This is one of those moments in history when we're all going to look back and think 'OK, what did we do after the 2016 election?'" she continued. 'What did we do when we saw divisiveness in our country, when we saw attacks on women's reproductive health care, when we saw attacks on our health in general? Were we on the correct side of history?'"
