Time for a Political Revolution

Politics should be about people, not corporations, and Sarah is a young millennial fighting for representation by real people and for real people.  Sarah believes that all people, students, and persons deserve a chance at the American dream. We Washingtonians know what it means to respect persons across our great state, and Sarah wants to take that same progressive vision to Washington D.C.

"This isn't about finding the middle ground anymore. This is about people, not corporations, living and dying. We need a Congress that represents that."

In the wealthiest nation in the world, we should all have the things we need to thrive.

The political establishment have monopolized our wealth and power for long enough. Corporations own politicians and those same politicians send young men and women overseas to die in the name of greed.  It's time we change that.  It's time we rescind the President's unilateral power on military action, it's time we gave students real debt relief, and it's time we restore power back to the people.

Washington needs representation by Us

In 2018, the average voter age in the 9th District will be 35 years old. Yet in the 115th Congress of the United States, less than 5 of the 435 members represent people like us. Sarah Smith represents the people of Washington's 9th district. Sarah experienced the impact of the economic recession in 2008 when her family was forced to move without her. Sarah ended up on her own at just 17 years old. This led to Sarah moving to Washington for the first time and falling in love with this state, and how Washingtonians cared for one another. Like many of us in Washington, Sarah graduated from college and has felt the crushing effects of our looming student debt crisis. Sarah has seen the worst of our system during her work helping families in the midst of the recession as a foreclosure specialist, her time as a paralegal, or her time as a bodily injury insurance adjuster. Sarah has worked as a political activist throughout her life, whether as a volunteer for Planned Parenthood, an organizer for a woman's STEM conference, or as direct support for immigrant families. Sarah is the voice that represents a government by us and for us. As a result, Sarah has not and will not accept corporate donations, Super PAC help, or lobbyist support.

Representation by us and for us

End Corruption

Super PACs take the power away from the people and give it to corporations and the wealthy. Private donations to politicians and campaigns should be banned and a clean public financing system must be implemented to end the takeover of our government by billionaires. Americans deserve free and fair elections . The Supreme Court has effectively legalized bribery. It’s time for an Article 5 convention to take our Democracy back from the oligarchy of the wealthy, and it's time to give power back to the people.

Create Medicare For All

The United States should catch up to every other modern nation and implement a single-payer, medicare-for-all system. There’s no reason we can’t be #1 in the world instead of #37.I am an ardent supporter of a true Single Payer Solution. All other first world, developed nations recognize healthcare as a human right and we should too. Placating half measures that don’t get the job done aren't good enough anymore. Access isn’t enough. Medicare For All today, Single Payer tomorrow.

Create A Just Justice System

We have created a system that favors the profit of private prisons over the treatment of persons. We must move toward a rehabilitative future, our approach must be to provide help, not cages, to people We must end the private and for-profit prison system that exists immediately. We must stop policing purity and start policing crimes. I support decriminalizing and marijuana and descheduling all other substances. Finally, we must end zero-tolerance policies in schools. There is an undeniable link between the school-to-prison pipeline and zero-tolerance policies.

Create free public higher education

In America, every child deserves a chance to succeed. K-12 education has been crucial for our country's past. K through College is crucial for its future. We must offer publicly funded vocational school and university in order to keep America a high-tech 21st Century society. We need a workforce that is diverse and filled with people who possess the skills necessary to compete in a global market. Our children must be prepared for this 21st Century with a firm background in science-backed education. Science based education has been the backbone of our education system, and on this point we must not deviate. Climate change, evolution, and other indisputable consensus in the scientific community must be treated in a serious way and be the foundation of our education curriculum.

Raise the Minimum Wage

This is about justice and basic human decency. If you work hard and you work full time you shouldn’t live in poverty. Furthermore, we support strong unions and collective bargaining.
