As a former educator, Congresswoman Adams understands how access to quality, affordable education can change lives. Her goal is to shorten the achievement gap and ensure more students have access to educational opportunities.

The first piece of legislation she introduced in the House was the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Professional Readiness Education Preparation (STEM PREP) Act. The STEM PREP Act helps create a pipeline of skilled workers to enter STEM fields. The STEM PREP Act also prioritizes the inclusion of fine arts in technical education. This equips employees with not only the technical skills and critical thinking skills needed to do the job.

A graduate of an HBCU and a professor at one for 40 years, Congresswoman Adams recognizes the importance of HBCUs in their communities and their impacts on their students. The first bill she co-sponsored focused on the restoration and preservation of these historic sites. She is also spearheading the HBCU Caucus, guaranteeing that HBCUs are always a part of legislative conversation.
