Any parent can tell you, it’s hard to support your family while you have little ones who depend on you for their well-being. Working parents still face many challenges, like minimal or no parental leave and a lack of affordable daycare. Today, on National Working Parents Day, I want to say to thank you to all of those out there raising the next generation of Americans to be engaged, informed, and kind.
My grandmother was the first in our family to attend college and she was passionate about making a difference through politics. Both my grandmother and mother were working parents, school teachers, and advocates for social change. Thanks to the dedication and sacrifices made by my mother and her mother before her, I am running for office today.
Their struggles and stances on labor issues informed my vision for this state. I want to bring the issues you deal with as working parents to the Legislature and work on your behalf for change. Please take a moment to donate to our campaign and help us build momentum by donating $5, $25, $50, or any amount you can spare.
Thank you again for all that you do.
