LIST OF ISSUES
People have the right to bodily autonomy, and reproductive justice. These encompass the entire spectrum of reproductive care, including contraception and abortion. Due to recent decisions by the Supreme Court, we must assert that people's reproductive rights shall not be abridged and shall be preserved and protected according to long-standing law and the constitutional right to privacy.
Civil & Human Rights
We believe in a democratic government that cherishes our Constitution, especially its guarantees of free speech, free exercise of religion, separation of church and state, and freedom from all forms of discrimination. The inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all human beings are the foundations of freedom, justice and peace in the world. The strength of our democracy rests on the rights and responsibilities set forth in the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Democrats must continue their traditional leadership in championing the civil rights of all.
Achieving adequate state funding for public education, including pre-kindergarten;
Encouraging economic development that does not compromise the natural resources that are vital to our local fisheries and farms;
Assuring access to affordable health insurance for all residents, including expanded MaineCare to assist those least able to afford coverage;
