I am deeply honored to received Forward Together Action's first endorsement. Forward Together's strategic and visionary organizing, communications, and cultural work is a model for me of how we need to approach social change work. I will still be a community organizer when I'm in office, and I look forward to working with FTA as a state Legislator.
