I believe that Medicare for All is the only way to assure that ALL women, and not just those that can afford it, receive the healthcare that women, children, and men need.

I believe that the women with the greatest healthcare challenges tend to be minorities and immigrants.

I am a war refugee who was brought to the United States at the age of 4 on a converted troop ship. I have experienced first-hand anti-immigrant discrimination and harassment as a young child growing up in Chicago. Even so, I cannot begin to imagine what today's immigrants and refugees go through, as when I arrived, they did not put kids in cages. Never forgetting that we are all immigrants, Peter fights for immigrant rights.
