As Silicon Valley prospers, it comes with great responsibility to our workers, community, and nation.

Through my commission on Equity and Excellence, we have crafted a set of solutions to ensure equity in education.

I have brought nearly one billion dollars to the Bay Area to support the extension of BART to Berryessa.

I have been an unwavering champion for human rights and social justice everywhere.

I work closely with Silicon Valley business leaders and have often brought their ideas to Congress.

People deserve respect and support for who they are regardless of their gender identity.

As Chairman of the Immigration Task Force, I am continuing to champion immigration reform that keeps families together.

I want to save and strengthen Social Security well into the future and provide it with a solid source of funding.

I continue to work in support of programs and policies to make housing more affordable and accessible for working and low income families.
