Grey Bull for Congress

                                                "Are you willing to fight for someone you don't know
                                               as much as you are willing to fight for yourself?"
                                        ~Senator Bernie Sanders





OUR COMMITMENT TO THE PEOPLE:

Leadership comes from working directly with people. I have spent my entire adult life working for women, families, and communities in crisis. We must take this service-and-advocacy model of community work into Congress. I will begin every policy discussion by asking: How do these problems, and these solutions, affect working families? How do they affect women? How do they affect indigenous people and communities of color? How do they affect the natural ecosystems in which we all live? If we begin with those questions, rather than treating them as an afterthought, we can create people- and earth-centered policies in harmony with our needs and resources.

AN ENERGY POLICY FOR WORKING FAMILIES, THE STATE OF WYOMING, AND THE PLANET:

What does science tell us? What do our indigenous elders tell us? And, what is best for working families and communities? The answer to all of these questions is the same: Coal, oil, and gas are not viable energy sources in the long-term, environmentally or economically. On the other hand, we can make Wyoming into the most competitive renewable energy producer in the nation, while taking care of our working families and the communities who have, up until now, relied on the fossil fuel industry for their security. I will not leave a single worker, family, or community behind as we push forward for a prosperous and clean future. 

RESTORE AND DEFEND REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM:

I support a federal right to abortion and the federal government taking steps NOW to protect everyone exercising their reproductive choices. I have helped people in crisis--women, victims of violence, children--in many capacities during my career. These police-state-level abortion bans are unacceptable even if you're personally against abortion. And ultimately I want to help build a society where reproductive choices aren't made in a world of fear and insecurity.

LGBTQIA+ RIGHTS

LGBTQIA+ and two-spirit individuals experience disproportionally high rates of prejudice, discrimination, poverty, and violence. Despite our title, “the Equality State,” Wyoming has no laws protecting the basic human rights of these individuals. In the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, LGBTQIA+ and two-spirit individuals fear losing their right to privacy and ban on anti-sodomy laws (Lawrence v. Texas), right to contraceptives (Griswold v. Connecticut), and right to marriage (Obergefell v. Hodges).  As a member of Congress, I will vote to codify same-sex marriage through laws like the Respect for Marriage Act and continue my work as an advocate for all Wyomingites.  I will also work to protect the rights of gay and transgender individuals through federal legislation that protects Wyomingites where state laws are currently failing them. Transgender and gender non-conforming individuals deserve to live without fear of violence or discrimination.  I will fight against policies that disrespect a person’s gender identity and/or sexuality such as Florida’s and Texas’ inhumane legislation.  I will also push for state legislators to pass live-saving laws as outlined in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) state scorecards – which we currently have almost none of. Wyoming has zero anti-discrimination laws despite the fact that the federal hate crime protection law’s namesake – Matthew Shepard – was the victim of a hate crime here within our state borders. Gay and transgender individuals deserve to feel safe when working, attending school, and simply existing within Wyoming, and anti-hate crime laws are the first step towards that safety.

TAKE CARE OF OUR VETERANS:

There is no excuse for a society that lets its veterans--those who have put their lives on the line for their country--fall into homelessness or lack of healthcare. I will work to fix V.A. backlogs, to increase and expand veterans' access to training and employment opportunities, and to eliminate homelessness among our veterans.

                   “When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.”  
                 ~Arapaho proverb




STOP THE VIOLENCE:

I am an unrelenting advocate against domestic violence, racial harassment, violence against LGBTQIA+ persons, and the use of guns for criminal purposes. I supported the 2022 renewal and strengthening of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). I do not want the government taking our guns, but I will fight for gun responsibility: stronger background checks and stronger penalties for the unauthorized or illegal use of firearms. Finally, we need better mental health care, and the facilitation of a culture of peace and de-escalation in our communities. With my constituents helping me, I am confident we can make progress against America's increasingly dangerous culture of violence.

HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE:

Healthcare is a human right. The political barriers to comprehensive universal care are formidable and we must strap in to fight for long-term solutions. In the meantime, we can incentivize state Medicaid expansion by increasing the federal match for states--something that would have made a difference the last time the Wyoming legislature considered expansion. I will also fight to protect people with pre-existing conditions, reject junk insurance plans that charge higher premiums for people with health challenges, lower the cost of care and prescription drugs, and expand mental health coverage. 

EQUALITY, SECURITY AND PROSPERITY FOR EVERYONE:

Sending me to Washington D.C. means sending the fight for justice for missing and murdered indigenous people, a fight I will continue to wage with my determination and experience. The 2022 reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act restored some tribal sovereignty over crimes committed against native people, but we need to enact the full version of that fix. We also need to incentivize better cooperation between tribal and non-tribal authorities. In addition to fostering these changes, I will support continued progress towards police accountability in disadvantaged communities. I will also push for more autonomous, community-driven economic development, an end to predatory financial practices and housing discrimination. I will help re-start the push for comprehensive, just immigration reform with a path to citizenship and inclusion for those who make the leap of faith to come into our country.
