DuWayne is a lifelong strong proponent of women’s rights. The rise of the #MeToo movement across our nation has shined a light on the systematic oppression of women within the workplace and beyond. DuWayne is proud of his past support for paid family leave, women’s health care, and most recently the Suffolk County Legislature’s anti-harassment legislation.
DuWayne supports equal pay for equal work in order to help bridge the pay gap between men and women.
As a Veteran, DuWayne is supportive of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s Military Justice Improvement Act to combat sexual assault within our military ranks.
DuWayne will fight against Republican efforts in congress to strip women of their right to choose, and will staunchly defend Planned Parenthood against any attempts to defund their incredible work.
