The Sunrise Movement is an organization that is intent on making sure our leaders are paying attention to environmental issues and climate change above all. The Sunrise Movement endorsed me along with 19 other candidates for office from across the nation because of my pledge not to take money from fossil-fuel companies because I help to make sure that our air, land, and water in Pennsylvania will be protected for generations to come.
The American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations is the biggest federation of unions in the US and I am proud to have earned their endorsement. For years unions have been under attack by hostile lawmakers and union membership has declined. Unsurprisingly, American wages have been stagnant since the 1970s. I support working families in PA and that means I support the power of workers to organize and exert some control over the conditions of their employment.
Gun Sense Candidate
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was founded in 2012 in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Moms Demand Action pushes for measures to reduce the epidemic of gun violence in our communities. Moms Demand Action endorsed me as a Gun Sense Candidate because I pledge to push for commonsense measures to reduce gun violence in Pennsylvania.
Lancaster Stands Up
Lancaster Stands Up is a non-partisan, grassroots political organization that formed in the days immediately following the 2016 election. The goal of Lancaster Stands Up is to ensure that the leaders we will elect and those we have already elected pay attention to the people rather than powerful interests. Lancaster Stands Up endorsed me by vote of their membership and I will accordingly attend to and serve the people of Lancaster in the 97th District.
I have been endorsed by Leap Forward: I am a LEAPer. Founded in 2017, Leap Forward is an organization that aims to promote candidates for office that advocate for rational gun-safety measures. I stand for such measures, such as those that would keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of people who prove they are a threat to themselves or others.
Lancaster County Democratic Committee
I was endorsed by vote of the Lancaster County Democratic Committee in February 2018. I am part of a new generation of Democratic candidates in Lancaster County in 2018 that includes several determined women. I ran uncontested in the Democratic Primary on May 15 and am now poised to take on the Republican incumbent on November 6, 2018. I appreciate the support of the Lancaster County Democrats, the Manheim Township Democrats, and the Warwick Democrats.
