Women’s/Civil Rights

Marc has always been a staunch supporter, and longtime champion, of equality for everyone, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation:

  • Marc earned the sole endorsements of Equality California, the largest statewide LGBT rights group in California, and the Peninsula Stonewall Democrats.

  • Marc received a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte for his commitment to protecting a woman’s right to choose and expanding access to reproductive health services.

  • Marc served as an analyst in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the United States Justice Department, working to protect the voting rights of all Americans.

In the State Assembly, Marc will work to ensure that all Californians are treated equally under the law and that a woman’s right to choose is always protected, including:

  • Supporting a woman’s right to choose an abortion and to make her own reproductive health care decisions. Marc will advocate for more funding and access to reproductive health care services so every woman can seek safe and adequate care.

  • Strengthening pay equity laws so everyone receives equal pay for equal work. The pay gap between men and women in California is almost $8,000, which is completely unacceptable.

  • Supporting full marriage equality for all Californians and standing with the LGBT community in the fight for equal rights and against the discriminatory laws being passed in other parts of the country.

  • Restoring voting rights to felons who have served their time and returned to their communities. As part of the rehabilitation process, we should restore full rights to people committed to leading productive lives.
