Over the past year, I had to step back from political activism to take care of my dad as he underwent two major surgeries. He is doing much better now.
I am getting back into political activism. Here are a few of the things I am working on. Make sure you sign up for the newsletter to get latest updates.

I’m with Ed
I like Joe, but Ed has earned my vote. Senator Markey is a workhorse of a legislator. His work locally and nationally on the opioid epidemic is just one example of how hard he works for us. (read more) Leading on environmental issues has been the cornerstone of his career, with the Green New Deal being the latest initiative. (read more) In the age of Trump, he has provided a steady hand to check imperial presidential power by co-sponsoring a bill to remove the first strike nuclear attack. (read more) These are only three of the many reasons I am supporting Senator. Ed Markey next November and I hope you will join me. (Pledge Support)
Surprise out of network medical charge
There are lots of problems with our medical system and it is great to hear the robust debate on how to fix it in the Democratic Primary. My personal hope for the new year is to spend less time navigating the healthcare system. But helping out my dad over the past year gave me some insight into how dysfunctional it is. Everyone knows that insurance plans require people to only see medical providers within their network and you will pay higher fees if you, for instance, see a specialist who is out-of-network. But did you know that even if you go to an in-network hospital during a medical emergency, you might be charged out-of-network fees if the doctor who sees you in the ER is not in-network with your insurance? If you've ever been to the ER, you know that you have little control over who takes care of you. You also know that if you are in extreme pain or respiratory distress, out-of-network fees is the last thing you're thinking about. And you will not find out about the out-of-network charge until you receive the surprise bill from the hospital expecting you to pay out of pocket. This is absurd. Please help me raise awareness of this issue by signing this pledge card and telling your friends and family about it. (find out more)
