I’m not a career politician. This campaign is not backed by special interests or backroom handshake deals between political insiders—it will be backed by small donations and grassroots activism from average people, just like you. My goal is not to become a career politician. My goal is to step up and serve the interests of the folks of New Jersey's 7th Congressional district.

After the last election cycle, we all need to do more than just vote in a general election every four years and share political articles on Facebook. On January 21st, I marched on Washington with hundreds of thousands of others who, like me, are unnerved by what is happening to our country and who want to create a better future. Marching in such a large demonstration had a big impact, and it was clear that the issues this country is having are bigger than myself. I came back to New Jersey energized and ready to fight, but not just by calling and writing to my representatives. We all need to band together to improve access and affordability of healthcare, keep our planet habitable for future generations, and ensure quality education for every young mind. We can impact the future just by being physically present and showing our elected officials that we are committed to the hope and change we voted for in 2008 and 2012. However, even after committing to show up and become more involved in political activism, I couldn’t stop thinking that we can do a better job at representing the people of New Jersey than Rep. Leonard Lance.

Our national government has turned its back on elder care, veterans, millennials, and the middle class. It’s time for young women like me to throw caution to the wind and feel inspired to serve, even if we are not natural politicians. I believe that New Jerseyians need a representative in the federal government who is focused on the future—on educating young minds, maintaining the environment, on keeping healthcare accessible for everyone. If I am elected to Congress, I will be the youngest woman ever elected to serve in this capacity—my candidacy represents the future of political change for New Jersey's 7th Congressional district and for America writ large.

I will fight tooth and nail to make America’s public education system the best in the world again. I will draft legislation that limits the impact we have on furthering climate change and I will hold our government accountable to the Paris climate agreement. I will make sure that we either repair the Affordable Care Act to keep the cost of health insurance and medical care in check or that we modify it and replace it with something even more inclusive and affordable.

Together, I want to work with all of you, New Jersey, to keep America strong and filled with promise for our kids and grandkids and great grandkids in the future by representing you in Congress. Thank you!

Thank you!

We've only been at it for just over a week and already raised over $1,500! It's just a small sliver of what we'll ultimately need to make this campaign viable, but I am so incredibly grateful for all of your contributions and for backing my run. Small, grassroots donations are a testament to the power of the people at large and we need our voices to be heard in Congress!

I sincerely appreciate your support. Please continue to share this campaign with your friends and family. Every day that Leonard Lance votes on an issue that is diametrically opposed to what his constituents want, your donation to this campaign means more.
