I’ve taken the End Citizens United’s No Corporate PAC pledge and have outlined a number of bold plans to address the challenges we're facing, like providing affordable health care, ensuring liveable wages and protections for workers’ rights and providing a fair and transparent political system that puts power in the hands of the people. I’m ready to fight for the people and families of South Jersey, not only through the economic crisis we’re facing, but for the future of our children and our community.”
“I am excited for SJ Progressive Democrats’ endorsement of Amy Kennedy, a former educator, mental health activist and defender of workers rights.
