“There is an urgent need to respect and promote the inherent rights of Indigenous Peoples.” I will work to maintain and deepen the recognition of our political, economic, and social structures and reinvigorate the respect that our cultural and spiritual traditions, histories, and philosophies deserve.

Eve is an Indigenous woman who has fought on behalf of the community and the land for over 20 years. Born and raised in East Los Angeles, Eve moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1998 where she and her husband, Billy Aguirre, raised four children.

She does not accept funding from special interests or corporate giants.

"We can no longer ignore the damage that we have caused to our environment. Our land, air, and water have reached their breaking points. We must do all that we can to reverse the harm done by our reliance on fossil fuels and the toxic extraction methods used to obtain them. In areas where the damage cannot be undone, we must not allow this exploitation of our environment to continue. In the U.S. Senate, I will vote to divest from any projects that contribute to the depletion of our planet’s resources. Our future generations depend on sustainable, renewable solutions to our energy crisis." Eve Reyes-Aguirre

"In the U.S. Senate, I will fight against racism, sexism, classism, ableism, ageism, homophobia and any legislation that seeks to undo the progress we have made towards equal treatment and equal protection for all people. We can only make progress by addressing the root causes of oppression. I will work directly with those who are most impacted by these social issues to develop and implement real solutions." Eve Reyes-Aguirre

"A living wage for all workers is imperative for our economy to not just survive, but to thrive. I will make it easier for socially responsible companies to rise, and more difficult for companies that exploit workers to succeed. I will fight in Washington for the continued economic development of Arizona. I will work to make the minimum wage a living wage and promise that any business that is unwilling to make that commitment is not a business that will flourish in our great country." Eve Reyes-Aguirre

"A primary concern that drives me to campaign for this Senate position is to leave a better world for our children. Right now, we are not prioritizing our teachers and we are not giving them the schools they need. Short-term solutions and meager salaries will not benefit the next generation nor will it build Arizona’s prosperity. In Congress, I will not support any budget that tries to take another cent away from our struggling schools, and will write legislation that bolsters our community’s schools." Eve Reyes-Aguirre
