Promoting Diplomacy & Human Rights

Democracy is being challenged by authoritarian movements around the world, and Congress has an important role to play in making sure the U.S. remains a beacon of democracy and human rights in the international community.

As we’ve witnessed with the unconscionable, unjustified invasion of Ukraine by Vladimir Putin’s military, opponents of democracy will stop at nothing to advance their dictatorial aims. Opposing them requires a strong U.S. that is committed to diplomacy and fostering strong, democratic alliances.

In Congress, I will:

  • Advocate for a global coalition to fight corruption and authoritarianism, and to address the existential threat of climate change
  • Support the U.S.’s continued, ironclad commitment to NATO, and other critical alliances
  • Maintain U.S. support for the government of Ukraine including the provision of military technologies and sharing of intelligence
  • Support additional sanctions and diplomatic efforts to isolate Putin’s corrupt government
