Endorsement Statement from Representative Barbara Lee

Dear Indivisible East Bay,

I am humbled to be considered for an endorsement from Indivisible East Bay. My life’s work has been about being a steadfast progressive voice for social justice, racial justice, voting rights, climate justice and real opportunities for all.

Let me acknowledge all of you for your great work. I remain inspired by the spirit of the East Bay community and grateful for all those who have provided vital care and services for our communities.                 

We have worked hard to get people vaccinated and provide economic relief. We delivered transformational investments for families through the expanded Child Tax Credit. We’ve created millions of good-paying jobs, provided critical funding for infrastructure, invested in a green economy, public safety, affordable housing, tackled racial inequality, and more.

Thank you IEB for joining me to fight for the passage of the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. The Act is a critically necessary step to ensure that voting remains a fundamental right and to uphold the legacy of my dear friend and colleague, Congressman John Lewis.

As your Representative in Congress, I will continue to advocate in Congress for issues that are critical to our community such as ending poverty, education equity, addressing health disparities, and the lack of access to health care.

Thank you,

Barbara Lee
