Kim is the product of a small community and a working class family. As a young woman, she worked multiple jobs while earning her degree. She then went on to graduate school and began her career as a tenured faculty member. She taught U.S. history to thousands of diverse, international students, many of whom were the first in their families to go to college. Like her, they worked several part-time jobs to support themselves, pay tuition, and pursue their American dream. Kim spent many long hours helping students work through challenges — including one unforgettable grandmother who cleaned homes and offices until 2:00 a.m., and still succeeded. She is a proud single working mother to her daughter, Cassi, who is Ethiopian by birth. Cassi came of age as the daughter of a diplomat and represented America, by her mom’s side, since she was two. Cassi is also the first person in her family to run for office, winning her race for Treasurer in third grade.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California (3)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Respuesta de Kimberly Elizabeth Williams:

The Green New Deal also puts people at the center of the plan to transition to a sustainable and equitable world. It provides Americans with the training, education, and job guarantees needed to ensure a feasible and just transition. The Green New Deal hopes to upgrade our current infrastructure to energy-efficient, "smart" power grids, and will ensure affordable access to electricity. 

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Kimberly Elizabeth Williams:

Medicare for All will ensure all our hard working families have access to the care they need regardless of their employer. This will eliminate excess costs, reduce out-of-pocket expenses, and put an average of $3,000 back into the pockets of Valley residents each year. It is time to expand coverage to include dental and mental healthcare, end medical bankruptcies, and create a system where healthcare is a guaranteed right, not a privilege.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House of Representatives.
Respuesta de Kimberly Elizabeth Williams:

I am committed to combating systemic racism and bias by lifting up marginalized communities and expanding equal opportunity for all. We must overturn this Administration’s policy of cruelty and division by ending private detention facilities that create inhumane conditions and separate families at our border. I am committed to work towards a clear path for citizenship for all undocumented immigrants.
