BOLD PAC, The national progressive hispanic organization, is backing Juana Matias for Congress in MA-03.
“Juana Matias has dedicated her life to fighting for working people and for an America that leaves no one behind.”
PODER PAC‘s mission is to increase the number of Democratic, Pro-Choice Latinas serving in Congress.
There are eight Latina Democrats currently serving in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Latinas make up less than 2% of the 435 House Members and 1% of the 100 Senators.
They are supporting Juana’s effort to make Congress more reflective of the population and the growing Latino demographic.
NEW POLITICS is a bipartisan organization helping bring a new generation of leadership to politics by helping promising servant leaders run for public office.
“Juana believes that it’s time we send someone to Congress who will put people over politics. She will fight to ensure every person has an opportunity to achieve the American dream, including access to a first-class education, good paying jobs, and retirement security.”
Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera
“I’m incredibly proud to support Juana Matias in her run for Congress. As a first-generation American, Juana knows what it means to work hard for the American Dream. She has spent her life serving others, tirelessly fighting for families. As our State Representative, she’s been a leader, a relentless advocate and positive force for change who understands what it takes to create good, 21st century jobs and ensure every kid has access to a great school. Although I’ll be sad to lose her voice in the State House, I’m thrilled that veterans, and families across this District will have the opportunity to have Juana fighting on our behalf in Congress. It’s been 31 years since Lawrence has sent someone to defend it in Congress, it is way past time and every community in the 3rd District would have a great member of Congress in Juana!”
Congresswoman Linda Sanchez
“I am proud to endorse Juana Matias in her campaign for Congress,” said Congresswoman Sanchez (D-CA), the Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus. “Juana’s story is relatable to so many people across this country, and when I first met her, I was inspired by her drive and passion to create better opportunities for working people. Juana truly embodies the next generation of leaders we need in Washington, and I can’t wait to call her a colleague in Congress.”
State Representative Frank Moran
“Serving alongside Juana Matias on Beacon Hill has been an absolute honor and I am proud to endorse her campaign for Congress. Juana is one of the most dedicated public servants I know and a fighter for working people. Already, she’s led on legislation that will make our communities safer and expand economic opportunity for all. Although I’ll miss her as a colleague in the State House, she will fight harder than anyone else for our communities and I know she is exactly who we need representing us in Congress.”
