The Economy

When President Obama took office in 2009, America was in the worst recession since the Great Depression. Today, young people are still have an extremely difficult time finding jobs.

Gun Safety

The human and financial toll of gun violence is immeasurable. Every single day, 34 people are murdered in the United States. That equates to 33,000 lives that are claimed every year because of gun violence.

LGBTQ & Equal Rights

In 2015, the Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land in all 50 states. But targeted violence and the ongoing fight over transgender rights has proved that the battle is far from over.

Education

With more than a quarter of students failing to graduate high school and less than 25% being ready to attend a college or university, education is one of the foremost civil rights issues of our time.

Climate Change

Climate change has been a pressing issue for decades with President Obama attempting to make headway in the United States by joining many other countries around the world to tackle this issue.

Immigration
