Katie Hobbs is Leading Arizona to a Brighter Future
Senate Democratic Leader Katie Hobbs has dedicated her life to improving our community. She has worked tirelessly to fight back against the extremists trying to take over our state. As a native of Phoenix and lifelong resident of Arizona, she knows what's at stake. That's why she will continue fighting for every resident in District 24 and across Arizona.
Katie has a long record of supporting Democratic values such as equality for all, strong public education, and healthcare for low income families. Katie has fought hard against cuts to K-12 schools and higher education, and worked to restore funding to career and technical education programs. She has also sponsored bills to implement measures to better protect domestic violence victims, require rape kits to be tested, and equal pay measures for women.
As a social worker, Democratic leader and equal rights champion, Katie Hobbs is well equipped to continue to lead Democrats at the Arizona State Senate.
My bill proposing a Sexual Assault Survivor Bill of Rights (SB1355) was passed unanimously by the entire Senate!
The bill protects the rights of sexual assault survivors by guaranteeing rape kit collection, examination, and long-term preservation. Survivors of sexual assault would also be notified of the release of their assaulter, a much needed step that allows them to protect themselves.

Last month, Arizona Sen. John Kavanagh introduced legislation that would give businesses time to fix violations stemming from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Right now, Arizona’s Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national original or disability. But it does not include protections for the LGBT community. A new bill is attempting to change that.
State Sen. Katie Hobbs of District 24 has introduced a bill that would ban discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and veteran status.
In deep-red Kentucky, a reproductive-rights group is urging Democratic state legislators to introduce a resolution that declares, in a very blue-state manner: “abortion is health care.”
