Building just and inclusive societies begins with supporting free expression where all people have the opportunity to speak out and choose their own leaders without fear of repression. 

Free expression is a core values to build an equal, just, and secure planet.

 
 

Women's Rights

 
 

Women's rights are human rights. It's as simple as that. The world over, too many women are lack economic opportunity, political representation, and safety as absolutely vital components to pluralistic and just societies. 

 

 
 

Economic Opportunity

 
 

When it comes to earning a living, everyone should have an equal chance at success. Governments should build an even playing field to allow individuals' skills--not their place in life--determine what they do and how much they make. Economies should be based on the rule of law, citizens should be able to easily attain their desired level of education, healthcare should be guaranteed, and taxation geared towards building a strong middle class. 

What's more, the United States should provide robust and effective economic assistance to developing countries, because in concert with the policy choices above, it's a powerful combination that can open new markets for American business.

 
 

Climate Change

 
 

The United States is the only major country in the world that is not party to the Paris Climate Accords, after the White House announced its intention to withdraw in 2017. Climate change is not a problem that can be dealt with in the distance future, but a serious threat that must be addressed now.

Refusing to take climate change seriously risks economic and humanitarian calamity around the world. It drives a disconnect between the United States and her allies. And it reduces the chance that Americans miss out on the opportunity to create the energy of the future.
