Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley to Campaign with Democrats in Michigan Ahead of Midterms

Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley to Campaign with Democrats in Michigan Ahead of Midterms 

 

Boston, MA, October 21 – This weekend, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07) will travel to Michigan to campaign for Democratic candidates ahead of November’s midterm elections.

 

“In Michigan, in Massachusetts, and across the country, the future of our democracy and our communities is on the ballot,” said Congresswoman Pressley. “Who we elect on November 8 determines what policies we advance. And what policies we champion determines who lives and who dies, who survives and who thrives. We need leaders at every level – from my colleagues in the U.S. House, to governors and statewide leaders, to state legislators – who will organize, advocate, and advance real progress, and I’m excited to join Democrats in Michigan committed to that work.” 

 

At several events on Saturday and Sunday, Congresswoman Pressley will connect with students, small business owners, faith leaders, volunteers, and voters to talk about what’s at stake in the upcoming midterm elections and make sure folks have a plan to vote for Democrats up and down the ballot.

 

Congresswoman Pressley made history in 2018 when she became the first woman of color elected to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Congress, representing constituents in Boston, Somerville, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Randolph, and Milton. During her time in office, Congresswoman Pressley has introduced landmark legislation to combat the crisis of childhood trauma, codify the right to abortion and comprehensive reproductive care, abolish the federal death penalty, fix our broken clemency system, cancel student debt, and more. She serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, and she has led on issues ranging from expanding transit justice and ensuring an equitable public health response to COVID-19 to ending discriminatory credit practices and keeping families safely housed.
