Katie Hobbs Releases Plan For An Inclusive Arizona
PHOENIX — Today, Secretary of State and candidate for governor Katie Hobbs introduced her plan to make Arizona a more inclusive and equitable state.
Katie is committed to continuing to listen to marginalized communities across Arizona about their concerns about the present, and their hopes for the future. This plan, and last month’s Accountable Arizona plan, is just the beginning of Katie’s mission to make Arizona the best place to work, live, and raise a family and deliver meaningful progress for all Arizonans.
The plan is centered on four key objectives:
Making state government more inclusive by recruiting, hiring, and elevating women and underrepresented members of our community, and ensuring equality across all of state government.
Ensuring communities of color have access to economic opportunity by expanding capital for minority-owned and women-owned businesses, building a better pipeline to make good-paying STEM jobs accessible to more Arizonans, and addressing inequities in tipped wages.
Improving and defending access to women’s reproductive health care, especially the right to choose, as rigid and uncompromising politicians play politics with women’s bodies.
Defending the fundamental rights of Arizonans, including the right to vote and full equality under the law.
