Before Women’s History Month draws to a close, I want to be sure to thank all the history-making women and women’s organizations that are supporting me in my campaign to become your next State Senator.
I am consistently humbled, awed, and inspired by these women and groups who’ve endorsed me:
- Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis
- State Treasurer Fiona Ma
- Democratic Legislative Women’s Caucus
- Fund Her
- Run Women Run
- Vote Mama
- Women for American Values and Ethics (WAVE)
- Women In Power
- Women in Leadership
- California Women’s List
- California Women’s Committee
- Democratic Woman’s Club of San Diego County
- Democratic Women of South Orange County
- Women’s Political Committee
I love engaging with groups that advocate for women and women’s issues, and I look forward to adding more important groups to this list! (For example, I’m seeking the endorsement of Planned Parenthood, but their process isn’t complete yet.)
Thanks to all the amazing women Mayors and Councilmembers across our district for their support. I see you making history every day!
I’ve also been proud to support many women in their quests for office and to offer full-throated support for the women candidates who are coming up behind and alongside me.
Women need to do more than just leave the ladder down for other women to climb. I believe we need to actively put the ladder down and offer a helping hand.
You can see the full list of women who have endorsed me, and all of our allies, here.So far, over 150 California officials have offered their endorsements – we’re building a powerful coalition!
I hope I can count on your support, too.
Your contribution to our campaign is exceptionally meaningful, because the data shows that women candidates consistently have a more difficult time raising funds than men.
Women remain consistently underrepresented in positions of power, including in government. Here in California, only 14 of our 40 State Senators are women!
As the only woman in this race, it means so much to have you with me!
P.S. In the words of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, “Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.”
