Massachusetts Peace Action has proudly endorsed Damali Vidot (2nd Suffolk — Charlestown and Chelsea), Marianela Rivera (17th Essex — Lawrence and North Andover), and Anna Callahan (34th Middlesex — west Somerville and parts of Medford) for State Representative!
We endorsed these candidates because they are progressive leaders in their communities. They are unapologetic in standing up to institutions of power, on behalf of the marginalized. While the State House is dealing with important issues such as police reform, budget reform, transparency from our elected officials, and more, we need more progressive allies in the State House. We at Mass. Peace Action believe in supporting progressive candidates at all levels of government to transform our foreign policy, and our society, in to one that has peace and justice at it’s foundation.
Come support the next generation of progressive leadership, come ask questions, and have your voices and concerns heard. We hope to see you there!Find out more »
