We’ve been conditioned to satisfy a few individuals at the top at the expense of everyone else. If we want our democracy to survive ...
Donna's signature Healthcare for All policy (HCA) is a single-payer plan that fortifies and accelerates Medicare for All (M4A), drastically lowering the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs. HCA scales healthcare infrastructure, delivers higher quality care, and is cheaper than what we pay today. With HCA if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor (really!) view
Inadequate access to higher education is the single biggest threat to America's national security. Donna's Education for All (EDA) policy proposal ensures everyone in the United States can go to college, trade schools, or certification programs without being in debt forever. view

Texas’ 31st district is home to Fort Hood. There are more veterans per square mile in this district than anywhere else in Texas. Donna’s Healthcare for All (HCA) policy proposal ensures that veterans can go to any healthcare provider instead of limited VA options. view

We need a swift path to citizenship for Dreamers and DACA, and a legal way for the undocumented to come out of the shadows. We must protect workers by requiring employers to stop undercutting American wages by abusing immigrant pay.
Climate change is impacting our health, water, and food supply. Corporations and commercial fishing are the largest source of pollutants and plastics in the ocean. We need to diversify our energy sources with renewables, incentivize carbon neutral solutions, invest in research to mitigate climate change, and institute sustainable farming and fishing practices.
