Jay Gonzalez on Civil Rights
Equal rights for women in workplace
Women must be full and equal participants in our economy with equal career opportunities, equal pay, and workplaces free from discrimination and harassment. Women who work hard every day should earn enough
and have the additional support they need to provide for themselves and for their families. Women should be represented in leadership positions in business throughout our economy to ensure their full and fair participation at every level.

Hate and discrimination based on sexual orientation isn't OK
Q: Why are you running for governor?
A: I'm running because I think we need to be aiming much higher than we currently we are. One of the things I love about us, as Americans and Massachusetts people in particular, is that we've always believed that
we can overcome big challenges. That sense of optimism and entrepreneurialism and that willingness to work together to make progress. It's who we are. I think, my view of what the governor should be doing--and government--is taking on the big challenges
that are holding people back and try to make real progress on them. That's the type of governor I want to be. I also want to be the kind of governor that's making progress and standing up for every person across this state.
Making sure it's clear that hate and discrimination aren't OK. And as governor, I'll be fighting for everyone--no matter what color they are or what their sexual orientation is, or whether they're from Marshfield or Springfield.

Continue Massachusetts leadership like on marriage equality
Jay Gonzalez pledged to lead the Commonwealth with bold vision and concrete action that will make Massachusetts a leader once again. "From the American Revolution to marriage equality, Massachusetts has always been at the forefront of our country's
biggest issues," said Gonzalez. "President Trump threatens our values and threatens to take us backward. Now more than ever, we need a Governor who is going to stand up and fight for our values and fight to move us forward. I'll be that Governor."
