Endorsements

 

I’m proud to have a 100% rating from Windy City Times, the city’s premier LGBTQ newspaper, and a recommendation from the forward-looking United Neighbors of the 35th Ward, along with these endorsements from leading progressive organizations locally and nationally:

#VOTEPROCHOICE

 “A woman’s right to choose is non-negotiable. I’ve managed a Planned Parenthood clinic, and I will never stop fighting to provide all women comprehensive reproductive health services, without judgment or economic impediment. I am honored to have the support of #VOTEPROCHOICE in this fight."

Americans for Democratic Action

"It is an honor to have the endorsement of Americans for Democratic Action. I look forward to working together with ADA as we resist the current administration and strengthen the Democratic Party. By leading with a bold, progressive agenda, we can achieve enduring and meaningful progress for the 5th District and our country."

Independent Voters of Illinois - Independent Precinct Organization

"I am honored to have the support of an organization that not only shares my passion for social justice and belief in good government, but one that boldly supported my political inspiration Mayor Harold Washington. In community meetings, on the phones, and on doorsteps, people ask for bold, progressive leaders who will support Medicare for All, defend civil liberties and get big money out of politics. The people of the 5th District aren’t getting that from Mike Quigley, but on March 20th, they will have an independent progressive choice on the ballot, with the backing of IVI-IPO."

Justice Democrats

"I launched my grassroots campaign with the goal of building a bolder, more progressive and more inclusive Democratic Party.  I am honored to have the support of Justice Democrats. We agree that the challenges of everyday people can’t be solved by politicians tied to special interests. It’s time for leaders who will unapologetically fight for campaign finance reform, Medicare for All, pay equity and human rights. With their backing and the support of 5th District voters, I will do just that."

Northside Democracy For America

"I am proud to have earned the endorsement of NDFA, an organization inspired by Howard Dean and dedicated to supporting socially progressive, fiscally responsible and ethically committed candidates to all levels of government. This endorsement is particularly meaningful as NDFA has supported my opponent Mike Quigley in the past, and because this organization is run by people who live in the 5th Congressional District. Like NDFA, I am not afraid to take on the establishment and truly believe that with the right organization and commitment, we can make the Democratic party and our government lead from the left. I am honored to be both a member of NDFA and a candidate they believe in."

Progressive Democrats of America

"Now more than ever, we need bold, untainted Democratic leaders who voters can trust to put their concerns first. That’s why I am incredibly proud to have the endorsement of Progressive Democrats of America, an organization that is leading the charge to transform our Democratic Party and our democracy by supporting grassroots candidates and policies that will serve the best interest of working people, not corporations. I look forward to representing our shared progressive values in Congress."
