She supports marginalized communities, and she has talked about her support for the DREAM Act and voting rights.

Kelly McGinn, Roem’s Republican opponent, opposes ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment and is anti-choice. She is also against marriage equality and has worked to prevent LGBTQ families from being able to adopt children.
