In confronting critical, complex challenges in Russia, the Middle East, Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and in nations around the world, we must operate from a frame of equity and justice – that prioritizes coalition-building and supporting those on the ground in regions most impacted, and that considers military action to be an absolute last resort. As the Representative of a district that is 40 percent foreign-born, Ayanna knows that the foreign policy decisions we make don’t only affect people abroad, but their families and communities right here in the Massachusetts 7th.
She is a founding co-chair of the Haiti Caucus and has spoken out in strong support of human rights, with a focus on women, girls and the most marginalized around the world. She is guided by a vision of true peace and safety for all families. Following the damage to diplomatic relations caused by the Trump Administration, Ayanna will continue to advance people-centered approaches to global affairs, re-establishing America as a compassionate leader in the international community, prioritizing diplomacy, and promoting peace.
