Secretary Julián Castro at Opportunity First endorses Emma Collum.

Earlier this year, I founded an organization called Opportunity First with the mission to help elect a new generation of leaders up and down the ballot all across our country.

Today, I'm proud to announce that we have endorsed Emma Collum for the Florida House, District 93. Emma is a strong leader that will spur economic progress, protect our most sacred rights and be a model for inclusive leadership.

At Opportunity First, we are dedicated to investing in and supporting young, progressive leaders who put people before politics. People like Emma. The candidates we’re supporting this November represent the future of the Democratic party and showcase our collective vision for creating pathways to opportunity for all Americans.

We are excited to be part of Emma’s campaign and look forward to celebrating her victory.

I hope you can join us in supporting her candidacy and to contribute what you can to help her make a real difference in Tallahassee.
