Our September endorsements. Jennifer Childs-Roshak, Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund (advocacy@pplm.org)


Dear Searchingforreason.net
On January 21, 2017, nearly 200,000 people across Massachusetts took to the streets to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump and to declare a more inclusive, more equitable vision for our country. That day represented the largest political protest in history and it spurred nearly two years of unprecedented activism, organizing, and advocacy.
Earlier this month, we celebrated the wins of two of the Massachusetts Women’s March organizers, Tami Gouveia and Lindsay Sabadosa, in their campaigns for state representative. Today, we turn our focus to November 6, when we elect candidates up and down the ticket who will help enact the bold vision put forth by marchers.
Over the next two months, we will be knocking on doors, making phone calls, and organizing our friends and neighbors for these new leaders. In every corner of the Commonwealth, there is a high stakes election. In Central Massachusetts, David LeBoeuf, a longtime advocate for expanded health care access, is facing an opponent who regularly protests outside the Planned Parenthood health center in Worcester. On the South Shore, Kathy LaNatra’s victory would finally give the 12th Plymouth District an advocate for reproductive rights and health care it deserves. And in Andover, Tram Nguyen is challenging a sitting state rep who has spent his career working to deny young people access to comprehensive sex education, dismantle LGBTQ rights, and restrict access to safe, legal abortion. David, Kathy, Tram, and others are at the helm of the political movement born at the Women’s March, and it is up to us to help them win.
The election is just 50 days away. Head to our website, learn more about the important races in your community, and sign up to hear from your local organizer about how to get involved. Together, we can send a new class of leaders to the State House who will protect reproductive rights, dismantle barriers to health care, and defend our state from the Trump administration’s dangerous attacks.
Thank you.
