The passions which drive Rebecca in her advocacy and public policy work.
Rebecca leverages her 30-plus years of experience in community affairs, elected office, and public policy to implement positive change, primarily on the following issues:
Training and inspiring women and girls to pursue leadership opportunities in their community (i.e. positions on boards and commissions), as well as to run for public office.
Advocating and working toward systemic elections reform (i.e. implementation of Ranked Choice Voting and support of the Fair Representation Act).
Assuring that marginalized voices are integrated into mainstream organizational efforts by cultivating authentic inclusion of people of color, women, LTBQIA+, and political minorities in mainstream progressive groups and causes (i.e., public lands access and protection, patient-centered care, community planning, and the performing arts).
Supporting the full scope of patient-centered care (i.e., affording terminally ill patients the option to utilize medical aid-in-dying) and working toward improvements in population health by enhancing the social determinants of health.
